Arbitrary Placement of Walls
Martha Soukup writes tales of lost love, bitter loneliness, and pain. Each one is full of a sexual tension and righteous anger that belies the simplicity of its narrative. Delving into twisted psyches, she reveals a gentle understanding of the ‘alien’ in us all. This collection contains the best of her first decade of writing, with stories that have gained her nominations for four Hugo Awards, the John W. Campbell Award, and five Nebulas, including Nebula winner “A Defense of the Social Contracts.” Introduction by Neil Gaiman.
