Read full description of the books Monkey Sonatas:Seriously, these sci-fi covers are so awful, I'm starting to think they just might be awesome.
This collection holds a place in my heart because, in a sense, it was my introduction to science fiction (not that I've read much, but still). My camp counselor read me "The Porcelain Salamander" in the sixth grade, and I was taken with it enough to search out the collection of stories to read more of the author. A pretty good collection, that, as the subtitle "Fables and Fantasies" indicates, leans away from hard sci-fi. "Unaccompanied Sonata" is the best story of the bunch, and a great alternate-reality fable.
