The Goldilocks Zone is the part of a solar system that is suitable for life: not too hot, not too cold.

This collection features new voices in both fiction and non-fiction and the work of amazing illustrator and professional "doodle-er" Hayley Patterson. Whether sci-fi, fantasy, or absolutely true, each one brings new worlds of wonder and delight. These new voices in short story find the zone for a surprising take on life. And every time, it’s just right. Illustrated by Hayley Patterson and Edited by Polly Alice McCann featuring authors: Alexandra Ames, R.L. Aseret, Amy Bernstein, Brian C. E. Buhl, M.W.
