delightful submitted by apknapp on August 17, 2020, 12:50pm Several old favorites plus a few new ones since "Miracle," all as fun and intriguing as you'd expect -- but the best part is the list of recommended holiday reads, movies and tv episodes. Unfortunately, she gives short story titles without letting you know what colletion(s) they're in, which makes some hard to find. I love Connie Willis, love how she manages to convey alternate realities with just a few perfectly placed phrases, doesn't let the plot get bogged down in world-building. The characters are so absolutely right here and right now, the otherness of her settings only highlights the universal truths of human (and maybe alien) nature.
