Description

Aurora Award Finalist story from a multi-award winning author.

"Doug Smith is, quite simply, the finest short-story writer Canada has ever produced in the science fiction and fantasy genres, and he's also the most prolific. His stories are a treasure trove of riches that will touch your heart while making you think."
-- Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Hominids and FlashForward

"A great storyteller with a gifted and individual voice."
-- Charles de Lint

"One of Canada's most original writers of speculative fiction."
-- Library Journal

DESCRIPTION:
The Builders had made the House generations ago, to shelter the remnants of humanity from the poisons of the Outside. The Inners, the direct descendants of the Builders, now rule the House. The House protects the People, and the Inners protect the House. And Smoothers are the arms and legs of that protection.

Big G is a Smoother, ensuring that the daily activities of the House are not interrupted by "Harveys," citizens who suffer violent mental breakdowns in the claustrophobic House. But when Big G discovers a strange photograph of blue and white swirls of nothingness when responding to a Harvey call, it leads him to a woman and a world within the world he thought he knew. And a world outside it as well.

REVIEWS:
"I first read this story nearly a decade ago... The images and the power of the story have stayed with me all this time. That's one of the strongest recommendations I can give."
-- Kristine Kathryn Rusch, award winning author

"Well conceived, but as always, it's Smith's characters that drive the story. Big G is pitch perfect. Every aspect of his personality is just spot on... he is completely there and three-dimensional and his reactions and motivations are plausible. It works! The ending is just right. It couldn't have been any other way... "
-- SF Crowsnest Reviews

"Fed into my natural fears, suspicions, and all-round disillusionment with authority... culminating eventually in sweat-soaked nightmares about a post-apocalyptic world."
-- Cicada Magazine
