The State of the Art

Cover of The State of the Art.

Culture short stories! Very different in length, topic, and quality, lots of good stuff in there. Chief among them the one from Sma about Earth, and the one about the plant creature/person using a humanoid for their “she loves me, she loves me not”. And A Gift from the Culture was just hilarious.
