Relativity by Robert J. Sawyer You cant have brothers without being familiar with Planet of the Apes. Im not talking about the re-imaging done by Tim Burton, apparently much ballyhooed in its day, but the Franklin J. Schaffner originalthe one thats stood the test of time, the one that, even a hundred years after it was made, boys still watch.

Fallen Angel by Robert J. Sawyer Angela Renaldo never knew if it was an act of homage or of defiancewhether it was the ultimate show of faith in God, or whether it was tantamount to flipping the bird at the Almighty.

From his position, planted firmly on the ground, near the bleachers, hands resting on the gray rubber rims of the twin wheels that propelled him along, there could be no doubt. God had enough to keep Himself busy ...

Gulf War vets, Colombian War vets, Utopia Planitia vetsthey all relived their battle experiences, over and over again. And now I was reliving mine, too. But this would be different, thank God.

On the Surface by Robert J. Sawyer For once, at least, I grasped the mental operations of the Morlocks. Suppressing a strong inclination to laugh I stepped through the bronze frame and up to the Time Machine. I was surprised to find it had been carefully oiled and cleaned. I have suspected since that the Morlocks had even partially taken it to pieces while trying in their dim way to grasp its purpose. H. G. Wells, The Time Machine, 1895 The Morlock named Grach had heard from others of his kind ...
