Well known and well regarded in the world of science fiction and fantasy writing, Vandana Singh brings her unique imagination to a wider audience in this collection of stories, newly reissued by Zubaan Books. In the title story, a woman tells her husband of her curious discovery: that she is inhabited by small alien creatures. In another, a young girl making her way to college through the streets of Delhi comes across a mysterious tetrahedron. Is it a spaceship? Or a secret weapon?

The first Indian female speculative fiction writer, Singh has said that her genre is a ''chance to find ourselves part of a larger whole; to step out of the claustrophobia of the exclusively human and discover joy, terror, wonder, and meaning in the greater universe.'' A revolutionary voice in fantasy writing, Singh brings her passion for discovery to these stories, and the result is like nothing of this world.
''Vandana Singh is a most promising and original young author." (Ursula K. Le Guin, author of the Earthsea trilogy)"
Vandana Singh is the author of Younguncle Comes to Town and its sequel, Younguncle in the Himalayas.
