Among the stories in this book is "Hillary Orbits Venus," first published in 1999. As a girl, Hillary Rodham Clinton wrote to NASA and asked them how to become an astronaut. They wrote back and told her they didn't take girls. My story is about what might have happened if they had instead encouraged her.

Seeing that I haven't posted anything here for months, it seems appropriate to mention that I'm still here, still writing, and should have something more interesting to post soon. In the meantime, my new novel Season of the Cats is still available in hardcover (the trade paperback will be out sometime this year) and information about how and where to buy other books of mine in various editions is here.
