Biding Time Robert J. Sawyer Ernie Gargalian was fatGargantuan Gargalian, some called him. Fortunately, like me, he lived on Mars it was a lot easier to carry extra weight here. He must have massed a hundred and fifty kilos, but it felt like a third of what it would have on Earth. Ironically, Gargalian was one of the few people on Mars wealthy enough to fly back to Earth as often as he wanted to, but he never did I dont think he planned to ever set foot on the mother planet again, even though it ...

Just Like Old Times by Robert J. Sawyer The transference went smoothly, like a scalpel slicing into skin. Cohen was simultaneously excited and disappointed. He was thrilled to be here perhaps the judge was right, perhaps this was indeed where he really belonged. But the gleaming edge was taken off that thrill because it wasnt accompanied by the usual physiological signs of excitement: no sweaty palms, no racing heart, no rapid breathing. Oh, there was a heartbeat, to be sure, thundering in the ...

Above It All by Robert J. Sawyer Rhymes with fear. The words echoed in Colonel Paul Rackhams head as he floated in Discoverys airlock, the bulky Manned Maneuvering Unit clamped to his back. Air was being pumped out cold vacuum was forming around him. Rhymes with fear. He should have said no, should have let McGovern or one of the others take the spacewalk instead. But Houston had suggested that Rackham do it, and to demure hed have needed to state a reason. Just a dead body, he told himself. ...

You See But You Do Not Observe by Robert J. Sawyer I had been pulled into the future first, ahead of my companion. There was no sensation associated with the chronotransference, except for a popping of my ears which I was later told had to do with a change in air pressure. Once in the 21st century, my brain was scanned in order to produce from my memories a perfect reconstruction of our rooms at 221B Baker Street. Details that I could not consciously remember or articulate were nonetheless ...

The Shoulders of Giants by Robert J. Sawyer It seemed like only yesterday when Id died, but, of course, it was almost certainly centuries ago. I wish the computer would just tell me, dammitall, but it was doubtless waiting until its sensors said I was sufficiently stable and alert. The irony was that my pulse was surely racing out of concern, forestalling it speaking to me. If this was an emergency, it should inform me, and if it wasnt, it should let me relax. Finally, the machine did speak in ...
