Youd think that whatever causes these things to happen doesnt want them to be proved. URI GELLER 1995 JUNE 1 Matty Matty Telemachus left his body for the first time in the summer of 1995, when he was fourteen years old. Or maybe its more accurate to say that his body expelled him, sending his consciousness flying on a geyser of lust and shame. Just before it happened, he was kneeling in a closet, one sweaty hand pressed to the chalky drywall, his right eye lined up with the hole at the back of ...

In the Wheels by Daryl Gregory This is my first sale, which appeared in the August 1990 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. I wrote the story in the summer of 1988, during the first couple weeks of the Clarion Writers Workshop. The first draft was a third shorter, and it was Samuel R. Delany, the teacher that week, who pointed out that the story wasnt complete: the narrator had to return home and face the music. And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a ...

The Continuing Adventures of Rocket Boy by Daryl Gregory Writing Rocket Boy This is the first story I wrote after a long break from short fiction. Id had very little time for writing for several years. Our kids were being born, my wife was getting tenure, and we had a mortgage for the first time, which meant I really needed to work full time. What writing time I had I put into a novel that failed to sell. Meanwhile, this story was brewing. Several of the ideas and scenes were in my head for ...

Only two weeks into the drug trial and the prisoners were changing too fast, starting to crack. In the hospital wing, a dozen guards crowded around an open cell door.
