    In "A Matter of Dreams" the oft-disappointed crew of an itinerant spaceship find that magic and dreams can come face to face with the reality of money and power -- and that power abhors an honest confrontation. 
     
    Also here is "Phoenix," which gives an intimate glance at the Solcintra's Low Port, where artists and the abandoned must struggle to survive in the impoverished outskirts of Liad's greatest spaceport.

    A ship sits moored off the shore of exile. Broken, yes, but still afloat. And when Snow tells Temple to go secure it, the answer must be “yes.” Either that or a brutal, unforgiving death. 
    Temple, obviously, says yes. 
    But in doing so, Temple unexpectedly finds more than a moored boat. 
    Rei Rosenquist writes of a dark dystopian science fiction world where survival is a shot in the dark and hope is hard pressed and hidden, and you will turn the pages, desperate to find it.

    Seven fantastic tales of wild futures, strange visions, and unexpected comings-of-age, by the acclaimed coauthor of the bestselling Pern novelsNew York Times–bestselling author Todd McCaffrey is proof positive that when it comes to vision, talent, and imagination without boundaries, the apple never falls far from the tree. The son of fantasy fiction legend Anne McCaffrey, as well as her frequent coauthor, he offers up seven captivating tales that run the gamut from science fiction to humor to horror, each one a treasure and a marvel.   With heart, wit, and astonishing invention, Todd McCaffrey carries us away to places we never before dreamed we could go—whether he is chronicling the trials of a young boy with a most unfortunate name or a notorious convict released on parole. He treats us to a wild night in Paris that ends with a bang and introduces us to a talking car that simply will not shut up. With the chilling tale of a famous astronaut’s orphaned daughter, whose search for an unknown parent leads her to dark places, the strange yarn of a moon child and her very special tree, and the heartfelt story of a child burdened with soul-crushing responsibilities and the remarkable answer to his prayers, Todd McCaffrey shows himself to be a peerless storyteller whose short works of fiction are as exhilarating and powerful as his novels.

    “Riveting . . . vibrant and unsparing.” —Publishers Weekly (starred and boxed review)“Superb. . . . Startlingly original.” —Library Journal (starred review)“Once I started reading these stories, I couldn’t stop. They absorbed me thoroughly, with their taut narratives and evocative language—the language of a poet.” —JAY PARINI, author of Jesus: The Human Face of God and The Last Station“Sherwood Anderson would recognize this world of lonely, longing characters, whose surface lives Coffey tenderly plumbs. These beautiful stories—spare, rich, wise and compelling—go to the heart.” —FREDERIC TUTEN, author of Self Portraits: Fictions and Tintin in the New World“Whether [Coffey is] writing about a sinning priest or a man who’s made a career out of branding or about himself, we can smell Coffey’s protagonists and feel their breath on our cheek. Like Chekhov, he must be a notebook writer; how else to explain the strange quirks and the perfect but unaccountable details that animate these intimate portraits?”  —EDMUND WHITE, author of Inside a Pearl and A Boy’s Own StoryAmong these eight stories, a fan of writer (and fellow adoptee) Harold Brodkey gains an audience with him at his life’s end, two pals take a Joycean sojourn, a man whose business is naming things meets a woman who may not be what she seems, and a father discovers his son is a suspect in an assassination attempt on the president. In each tale, Michael Coffey’s exquisite attention to character underlies the brutally honest perspectives of his disenchanted fathers, damaged sons, and orphans left feeling perpetually disconnected.Michael Coffey is the author of three books of poems and 27 Men Out, a book about baseball’s perfect games. He also co-edited The Irish in America, a book about Irish immigration to America, which was a companion volume to a PBS documentary series. He divides his time between Manhattan and Bolton Landing, New York. The Business of Naming Things is his first work of fiction.
