Marty Halpern had a nifty brainstorm for George Alec Effinger Live! From Planet Earth. He asked friends of Effinger's — Mike Resnick, Howard Waldrop, Neil Gaiman, and more — to name their favorite stories and write a few words about them. The result is twenty-two of Effinger's best, including the eight previously uncollected "O. Niemand" stories (introduced as a group by Gardner Dozois).
Effinger died in 2002, but he has not been forgotten. This is the book to show you why.
