Keith Brooke is the author of fourteen novels, seven collections, and over seventy short stories. His work has been shortlisted for both the Philip K Dick and the Seiun Award. The novella that leads off "Mementoes is exceptional, a gripping evocation of crisis on a colony world, and the eight stories that follow (two of them original to this collection) are all of a high quality in their own right.
