Ten stories that push forward the boundary of the possible to bridge the separate worlds of reality and imagination. From a flower that exposes a murderer to a flower that wins the heart of lady on Mars from the perils of little learning to the dangers of great power.These inspired stories explore the realms of what might just happen. Spun using threads of scientific facts, decorated with embroidered truths and embellished with gems of fantasy, each story is imaginatively original. The separate worlds of romance, murder, apocalypse, humor, redefined mythology and future realities-all come together between the two covers.
