Reed, Robert. The Cuckoo's Boys. Golden Gryphon, dist. by Independent Pubs. Group. Nov. 2005. c.315p. ISBN 1-930846-37-1. $24.95. SF

In the title story, a brilliant man clones himself, using a reproductive virus that produces millions of copies of himself — but are they really the same? In "The Children's Crusade," a father watches his daughter grow up only to leave him for a greater, though perhaps futile, dream. This collection of 12 stories, several published only in magazines, represents the second compilation of Reed's work and features visions of the future that, while not always optimistic, never fail to probe the limits of human nature. For most short story or sf collections. (from the SF/Fantasy column by Jackie Cassada)
