"Twenty-three science fiction and fantasy authors explore the depth and breadth of caring and of giving. They find insight, joy, devastation, and heroism in grand sweeps and in tiny niches. And, like wasps made of stinging words, there is pain in giving, and in working one's way through to the light. Our lives and relationships are complex. But in the end, there is hope, and there is love. These are their stories. Children giving care. Dogs and cats giving care. Sidekicks, military, monks, ghosts, robots. Even aliens. Care given by lovers, family, professionals. Caregivers who can no longer give. Caregivers who make the decision not to give. The costs and the consequences that follow. Bound to us by invisible bonds, but with lives, dreams, and passions of their own. Introduction by Dominik Parisien. In addition to dealing with caregiving and caregivers, the book also deals with mental health and mental illness. There is an appendix in the book for Mental Health Resources and another appendix for Caregiving and Caregivers Resources"--
