"""A Palazzo in the Stars"" collects 17 great science fiction stories by a modern master From the author's Introduction: ""This collection represents the output of about two-and-a-half years, and, while I might have filled such a book in one year's writing time circa 1990, there's nonetheless another collection's worth of newer stuff awaiting curation, beyond this volume. I guess by now I should realize that, for me at least, the process is inevitable, rather like another process I am all too familiar with: acquiring extra pounds. Pleasurable, stealthy and yet eventually noticeable to all. I hope you enjoy these stories of recent vintage.""
