Contains one of the Best shorts I have ever read. Dec 15 1998
By JamesToddA@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
A collection of short stories, added to the Novella which bears the same name as the book. The author has one of the best grasps of dialouge I have ever seen. If you are a fan of Science Fiction for Science Fictions sake, don't bother having them track this down. But if you believe that Science Fiction/Fantasy is a framework where real human storys can be painted, this book is for you. The selection "Influencing the Hell Out of Time and Theresa Golowitz" is quite simply one of the best stories I've ever read

It can be found! June 19 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The Fire When It Comes is available in a collection of short stories at Dreams Unlimited and the collection is simply the best I've ever read! Priceless if you're willing to try an ebook to own this classic.

although the bracing mix of empathy ansd sarcasm is very like
imsgine drinking champagne and getting bubbles up your nose
nose candy, yes but not the kind that will kill you...should you shuffle off this coil while readin this marvelous collection, the coroner's verdict will be
"died laughing.
Parke Godwin indeed
