I wanted to make a mention of ALL WORLDS as I am still reading this as of upload time in True Review.

The entire collection is worth this story alone: the opening one, “Windows.” A mother makes a long and exhausting trip to prison to visit her incarcerated son, taking along a video zip file of the son’s sister, wishing him a happy birthday, taped on a ship she is aboard, millions of miles away: and all would have been well if not for the news of tragedy aboard the ship. It’s a gut-wrenching tale of separation, despair, hope and love.
