About the eBook

A collection of the earliest complete works of Daniel J. Lyons, four first-person short stories:

"A Visit to the Licensing Department" - a science fiction story about what life might be like if human lives were cheapened to the point where they could be taken legally as long as you get the correct permit.

"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.
