In my humble opinion, Walter Jon Williams is one of the under-appreciated gems of science fiction. "Facets" is a collection of his early short stories, originally published between 1985 and 1990, and is well worth your time.

Williams writes in too many genres to really classify, but during that period, he was best known for two (awesome) cyberpunk novels, Hardwired and Voice Of The Whirlwind. This collection shows the cyberpunk influence, and includes a sequel of sorts to Voice of the Whirlwind, "Wolf Time." As always, Williams is inventive and diverse, and includes far-future stories, alternate histories, and some stuff that is harder to classify. Many of the stories are haunting and have stuck with me since I first read them, decades ago.

If there's a common thread, it's that many of the stories dip into the essence of cyberpunk - a sense of sadness born out of loss. Whether it's Edgar Allen Poe fighting in the Civil War or a former superhero narrating his fall, there's a beautiful noir-style fatalism to most of these stories that unites them.

Highly recommended.
