This book contained short Sci-fi stories. I think the author was female. It was small, paperback, and had a colour illustration of young, blonde girl holding a light globe or orb under her chin.

  • Sadly out of print, but you should be able to find a used copy at ABEbooks or someplace similar. If you don't mind, please check that this answers your question. Thanks!

    "She" has the book and considers Henderson a favorite author. Given the info from Tatiana I immediately flashed on the book. I don't often get to answer a question here!
