The One Tree of Luna
Seven short stories of science fiction, science fantasy, fantasy and fable by the New York Times bestselling author with an illustration for each story.
Tree: When Jimmy's father dies, he promises to watch out for his mother but late at night begs for someone to watch over him, and in the morning gets a fantastic surprise.
The One Tree of Luna: Jenny is a Loony – a child born on the Moon – but she has big plans. Plans that never considered that someone might want to harm her special tree.
Tribute: Amanda Brown, world-famous astronaut, would never tell her daughter, Annogi, the identity of her real father. And now, years after Amanda's death, Annogi has hacked the station's security systems to find out so that she can live with him. Only she didn't expect an intruder – with an axe.
Why I Shot My Car: What happens when a talking car demands attention? And there's a talking gun, too?
Dasher: Maggie Trudeaux was part of the fledgeling space navy and she wanted combat duty. She didn't think for a moment that she'd get it.
Men! A pleasure night in Paris ends with a surprise.
Stone the Crows: Nerius Stimpton Poddlemore bore his name with all the grace that a youngster could manage.
This is a new, revised version of the collection published as Six with one additional story and an illustration for each of the seven stories.

A long time ago I described this novel to my mother. Her response was: “If you don’t write it I will!”
She read it in manuscript before she died and told me, “I think you’ve got a blockbuster here!”
What’s it about?
Sometime in the near future, maybe just tomorrow, there may come a totally new form of life on this planet. An artificial intelligence, or AI.
What will it want?
How will it perceive us?
One thing’s for sure – the world will never be the same again.
This is the story of the
City of Angels.
