The collection will include four previously unpublished stories, which are "High Iron," "Schrödinger's Cat Chases the Super String," "Stella Nova," and "L'esprit d'escalier: Not a Play In One Act." It will also include one poem (the notorious "e.e. "doc" cummings") and seventeen other short stories and novellas, some of them previously a bit difficult to find.
