A wise-cracking hitman is recruited by an angel of God to kill the oldest vampire on Earth. A son travels into the past to find the mother he lost.

The eighteen stories here will fascinate and intrigue, and some of them will break your heart.

-Ellen Datlow, multi-award winning editor and anthologist.

In these wide-ranging and beautiful short stories, readers will feel the characters’ emotions as their own.

-Sheila Williams, editor, Asimov’s Science Fiction.

These stories are love letters… and ransom notes from half-remembered dreams… and sometimes both.
