A collection of 20 science fiction short stories. These stories are "Old Fashioned" in the sense of involving humans confronted with critical problems.

There's a man with a shrewish wife, who finds a unique way of replacing her. A woman awakens in a hospital far in the future, and turns out to be the salvation of mankind. A truck driver must become a gladiator to keep his job. A newsman meets an alien who looks like a six-year old boy. A space scavenger finds the ultimate artifact. A librarian meets an alien who wants a library card. A girl finds out her grandmother's love has strings attached. A young woman on a space mission is increasingly horrified as her shipmates are murdered, one by one. A space trader is cheated and finds an elegant way to get even. A boy stows away on a spaceship and discovers a shape shifter shares the ship.

Each of these stories will draw you in and keep you reading.
