"The Busiest Workday" - a speculative fiction story told by a mid-level angel that attempts to answer the question will bureaucracy ever end? by documenting the heavenly aftermath of the apocalypse.
"Come Around Here Often?" - a science fiction story told by Captain Wilson Banski who, after an enemy attack destroys his ship, deals with misadventure and cultural misunderstandings after his escape pod lands on an alien planet.
"Best Friend Bears" - a fiction piece told by Sarah about growing up with her best friend Ann and their special pair of stuffed bears.
The collection and each story features an introduction from the author offering a peak at how they came to be.
