a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
|Georges Standon computes the probabilities of unlikely events for a living, especially those relating to outer space, but this does not prepare him for the complications in his personal life when an old lover shows up with surprising news. I could classify this story as "science fiction" below, since the setting involves some space travel that is not presently possible, but those aspects are not really relevant to the main thrust of the story which is more of a standard literary character study.|
Like the author herself, the protagonists in the short stories comprising Lynn Margulis' Luminous Fish: Tales of Science and Love are all scientists. Each story explores a different character's professional and sex lives, with some characters shared between stories to tie them together.
