The Amount to Carry by Carter Scholz
In this collection of twelve stories, Carter Scholz reveals his truly remarkable range and prodigious narrative gifts. Traveling from the surface of the moon to the New Jersey suburbs, they explore the places in the human mind where science and fiction merge. Here are stories that disturb the universe, probe the worlds we call home, and measure the degrees of our alienation. Mind-expanding, entertaining, and often richly disquieting, the stories in The Amount to Carry are bravura performances of the imagination.
