This collection is the final in the series Burning Bush Stony Ground. As in the case of the other four volumes, the stories have previously appeared scattered among the pages of Troubled Water, When It Was the War, The Devil in French, Second Coming, and The View from Below.
In the Burning Bush Stony Ground series, the stories have undergone changes in shaping, content, sequence, or point of entry. Some appear under different titles.
All the stories in the series, with the obvious exception of those with celestial, infernal, and futuristic themes, have personal connections.
