    "Twenty-two SF and fantasy stories, including 'The Fog Horn,' about a sea monster that loves a fog horn; 'The Pedestrian,' the classic tale of a walker who is lonely because everyone is watching television; 'A Sound of Thunder,' where a time-safari to hunt tyrannosaurus rex alters the present because a hunter accidentally kills a butterfly; and the title story, about a spaceship that flies into the Sun's atmosphere to capture part of its substance. Emphasis on message and characters, rather than science."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
