Debut collection of science fiction tales from Nebula-nominated author Kenneth Schneyer

First, the law. A time traveler confronts a judge to prevent four years of war. An author undergoes suspended animation to preserve his copyrights and escape his creditors.

Then, the heart. A medical accident robs a husband of 20 years of marriage. A soldier mother struggles to tell the difference between her daughter and the alien enemy.

Exploring the seams where humanity and technology, society and individuality intersect, Nebula- and Sturgeon-nominated author Kenneth Schneyer presents thirteen mind-bending, thought-provoking tales of near and far futures that will amuse, amaze, and unsettle. The law will change, and the heart will change, and the heart will change the law. These stories confront the question of just what makes and keeps us human.

"The stories here are formally ingenious, even startling, and at the same time full of heart; the combination is brilliant and delightful. More please!"— Kim Stanley Robinson, author of 2312 and Shaman: A Novel of the Ice Age.

"Spare us the lawyer jokes - here is a collection of stories from a writer who can navigate around the quiddities of the law and still plumb the tumultuous depths of human emotion. Ken Schneyer extrapolates the future of our legal systems with the dexterity of an Asimov putting his robots through their paces and yet in these (lucky) thirteen stories you will meet people just like you who live lives you would never have imagined. The Law & The Heart is a witty, moving calling card from a writer you'll want to see again soon." — James Patrick Kelly, Hugo, Nebula and Locus Award winner

Note: This digital edition includes ePub and Mobi (Kindle) versions of the novel.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
