Survivors must be found, so that the Disty--the aliens who control most of Mars and abhor death--can perform rituals to cleanse the area. Terran forensic expert Aisha Costard believe that, since the deceased was a Disappeared, meaning she was involved in a matter of intergalactic injustice, Miles Flint, who specializes in retrieving Disappeareds, may discover something useful. Initially refusing the job, Miles comes aboard after realizing the deceased wasn't just a Disappeared; her fate harks back to a horrible and forgotten part of Martian history. Full-scale disaster arrives when another hundred victims are found beneath the first, and the Disty erupt in panic, nearly destroying diplomatic relations with humanity...

From Booklist
The search for a woman who has become Disappeared because of her involvement in the Etaen civil war--unusually, because she was pardoned--turns into a nasty murder case and a diplomatic incident. Retrieval artist Miles Flint's former partner heads the police investigation, and while Miles can't help her, his curiosity and conscience compel him to nab the perps, too. The Disappeared and her parents were murdered not long after Miles reunited them, and superficial evidence fingers Miles. But it's more complicated, of course. Indeed, the case is the kind of tangled web only PIs are comfortable with, for although the civil war has officially ended, it actually continues as long as there are witnesses to murders connected with it. The arrival on the moon of a delegation to make the Etaen bid to enter the Alliance complicates...

Newly promoted detective Miles Flint and his partner, Noelle DeRicci, a veteran on the force, have three cases of intergalactic justice on their hands. One woman, a successful attorney on the run; two children kidnapped by ruthless aliens; and three dead victims of an apparent alien vengeance killing have all turned up in Armstrong Dome on the moon. As Flint delves into the cases, he discovers that all involved intergalactic justice disputes and use of the services of Disappearance Inc. to avoid other-world authorities years earlier. Flint and DeRicci are on their own to solve the crimes and mediate the intergalactic jurisdictional disputes, for their superiors are afraid of causing an intergalactic incident. If the two cops can't put it all together, this could be just the beginning of something big. Rusch has created an...

He glanced through the glass window that separated him from the isolation area.Katie lay on the bed, her face so pale and thin that she almost didn't look human. A...

It's Not Easy Being Green At first it seems amusing when Kyle Valenti's skin takes on a lime-colored hue. But within hours, the hospital has become a disaster area, full of humans who look more like aliens than the real "Scandinavian" occupants of Roswell. Soon, Maria and Alex have joined the club, and Max decides to use his powers to return them to normal. Except his healing touch apparently doesn't work when the trouble is cosmetic, and not life-threatening. While the military forces the colored population into top secret quarantine camps, Liz searches for a scientific explanation and finds a familiar culprit -- and a new sense of urgency. Within forty-eight hours, this alien contaminant will change the humans' skin permanently, leaving the humans green...and Max, Michael, and Isabel unveiled.

From Booklist
In less than 20 years, Rusch has won most of the major sf and fantasy awards, including the Best Editor Hugo during her stint at the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. She admits that her editorial labors reduced her fictional output and apologizes, but she needn't, given the quality of these stories. "Skin Deep," her first published story, ended up in two best-of-the-year anthologies. "Echea," "Coolhunting," and "The Gallery of His Dreams" are all award winners. "Millennium Babies" is accomplished social commentary without being any less of a story. Altogether, they display versatility and capability that very few other sf hands could honestly claim to possess. Moreover, Rusch's work is more accessible than that of many others in the field. This gathering is a perfect vehicle for introducing readers to one...
