Want something to read while you sit down for just a few minutes on the bus or in a waiting room? Here's just the thing—forty authors, forty stories, mostly under 2,000 words, mostly reprints. Grouped according to their themes—artificial intelligence, technology, space, time travel, space aliens, the arts and media, religion, strange relationships, and reviving the past. There are even a few shaggy dogs.

Just remember—one sitting, one read! Others are waiting!

Includes First-Time-in-Print stories by film critic Daniel M. Kimmel, film-maker Douglas van Belle, mystery writer Brendan DuBois, SETI pioneer H. Paul Shuch, and software engineer Steven Popkes! Also, a bonus micro-story by David Brin!
