This collection of new short stories spans science fiction, fantasy and magical realism. "Dulcimer Gavotte and Beau" is a story that draws on New Wave traditions to weave a tale of love and people, in the face of mortality and a changing world. "Nancy May Makes Tea for Visitors" takes us to an Earth ripped apart by the intrusion of other dimensions and what happens when unwelcome visitors stalk an isolated young woman while her parents are away on business in other worlds and other bodies. "The Business of Dragons" parts the veil of secrecy in the wild forests of the hills far from iron rails, where a very old man and his dragon live while progress threatens to carry away his grandson. Inspired by Humans of New York, "Vampires of New York" tells of a young reporter who tries to capture the human side of the vampire clans of New York, under the watchful eyes of Marcus and Annia Gold. The final story, "Mind the Gap", is a classic story of the issues with technology but told with solid science and humour, as a lawyer from the mid 21st Century unwillingly appears at the end of history.
