"To Unimagined Shores: Collected Stories" by Sherry D. Ramsey

Hitch-hiking aliens. Kidnapped embryos. Victorian time-machines.
Spaceport detectives. Itinerant scribes. Otherwordly companions.

Seventeen stories, by turns funny, tragic, light-hearted and serious,
but all share this in common: they will carry you to distant shores
of imagination, and, once there, show you things you hadn't known
before.

Find it now at http://www.thirdpersonpress.com, amazon.com, and
other online sellers, in print and multi-format ebooks.
