      I don't remember exactly how old I was. Fifteen, maybe. It was the summer and I was at the shopping centre by myself. I needed 75 cents to get a C-train ticket home and I had no change and was too shy to ask anyone to break a dollar for me.

As the decades pass with increasing interaction with other sentient species, humans are shown moving from a belief that they are destined to rule the galaxy to the realization that their best in [...]

      This book has been with me some years and was a real find - I had read the short story Manifest Destiny some years ago as part of an anthology - now it has been collected together and used as a series of short stories that form Manifest Destiny, the title of which comes from a short story at the beginning of the book which then forms a bridge between the other stories including now Enemy mine. The stories are cleverly written and on the whole can and do stand alone - but they have a greater impa [...]
