J. R. Tomlin The Intelligencer Preface In medieval Scotland, a married woman continued to use her own familys surname. She only assumed her husbands surname if or when she was widowed when she took the title Widow along with his surname. 1 Careful you dont give her a good show, said Cormac the minstrel, lanky and grinning, one shoulder resting on the wall. Wheesht. Im giving no one a show, Sir Law Kintour said. He reached for a tiny jar sitting in the window and pulled out the cork, and released ...

The Day The Aliens Came Robert Sheckley. One day a man came to my door. He didnt quite look like a man, although he did walk on two feet. There was something wrong with his face. It looked as though it had been melted in an oven and then hastily frozen. I later learned that this expression was quite common among the group of aliens called Synesters, and was considered by them a look of especial beauty. The Melted Look, they called it, and it was often featured in their beauty contests. I hear ...

Peacefully he smoked his pipe, and considered how wonderful the world was. Today he had sold two amulets and a philter his wife was bustling around the kitchen, preparing a delicious meal and his pipe was drawing well. With a sigh of contentment, Mr. Dee yawned and stretched. Morton, his nine-year-old son, hurried across the living room, laden down with books. ...

The village, tiny and precise, a unique white dot on the planets green expanse, glistened under its two midsummer suns. Tom was just waking up inside his cottage. He was a tall, tanned young man, with his fathers oval eyes and his mothers easygoing attitude toward exertion. He was in no hurry there ...

The many layers of sandstone and multi-colored minerals had been compressed together over millions of years, creating rock formations both bizarrely garish and breathtaking in their beauty. Beneath the desert sun they glowed in vivid stripes of red and yellow, green and blue. It was an artists palette of color, a phantasmagoric feast for the eyes. Despite its beauty, though, this was a ...

It serves the finest food within a fifty-mile radius, and its proprietress is Fausta Moreni. It is also the last place in the world you would expect to witness a murder, though this was not a factor in my preference when I passed up three alternate dining places I like in favor of El Patio on the July evening Walter Lancaster was assassinated. ...

To myriads of men it had been the first and the last sound they had ever heard. It was part of the city: when it ceased the city would be dead and the desert sands would be settling in the great streets of Diaspar. Even here, half a mile above the ground, the sudden hush brought Convar out to the ...
