This collection was framed by an introduction that referenced the capriciousness of gods and the razor edge between wonder and terror that defines sublimity; it felt to me that the stories flirted with this theme but never quite declared their intentions.

Perhaps it was the circumstances of our creation. Perhaps we were not truly separate people but parts of a whole, as a thicket of aspen trees all grow from the same network of roots. And, even now, maybe it is no different.
