(The "Angel in Black" stories have been broken out into their own volume.) It includes some of his best-known stories, such as the Nebula Award finalist story "The Last Ghost" and the oft-anthologized "Sweet Dreams, Melissa." The complete Table of Contents lists:

Sweet Dreams, Melissa
The Girls on USSF 193
Nice Place to Visit
When There's No Man Around
Grim Fairy Tale
Of Love, Free Will, and Gray Squirrels on a Summer Evening
But As A Soldier, For His Country
The World Where Wishes Worked
Apollyon Ex Machina
Prelude to a Symphony of Unborn Shouts
Portrait of the Artist as a Young God
The Last Ghost
Haunted Houses

The stories in this book run the gamut from humor to pathos, and demonstrate the evolution of a prolific writer in the speculative fiction field. Enjoy!
