An excellent collection of longish short stories that explore religion, although not in the way I expected. Cards foreword & afterword were both great. He defines his beliefs on religion in SF in the former. I didnt fully agree with them, but I did by the time he was done. In no way does he push his brand of religion on anyone, but he takes a look at the overriding purposes of ritual & faith.Hes a smart guy with interesting insights. His condemnation in the court of political correctness is one of its more idiotic verdicts. The man is not his art - his art is a distillation of his insights, some of which he finds repugnant & yet makes a case for anyway.

For instance, in one story a man fights to honor another by completing a religious ritual which requires him to carry the mans shit (literally) on a harrowing journey. He finds it ludicrous, very strange & repugnant, but ... Anyway, the story makes its point very, very well.In this edition, he & several others read the stories. While he didnt mention it this time, hes said before that he writes his stories to be read out loud.

They were fantastic in this format.The only issue I had with these stories is their length. If theyd all been a bit shorter, I would have given this 5 stars - possibly should anyway. Highly recommended!
