(IBList user synopsis):
'Weep for the Moon' is an unusual piece, in both tone and approach. As Glenn Miller waits for his plane to take off on that fateful foggy day in 1944 he's visited by an apparition of his brother, Herb, and the ensuing story consists of their conversation. It's a thoughtful and compassionate piece of pure humanist sf (in the sense that it explores the ramifications of an idea, rather than the idea itself) -- a highlight of Kim Newman and Paul McAuley's In Dreams anthology, 'Weep for the Moon' is a stand-out story in this collection, too.
