Frederik Pohl THE COOL WAR I The day they came for the Reverend H. Hornswell Hake was his thirty-ninth birthday, and his secretary, Jessie Tunman, had baked him a cake. Because she liked him, she had only put two candles on it. Because she was Jessie, she dumped it in front of him with a scowl.

Better eat it fast, because your nine oclock people are getting out of that kiddie-car of theirs right now. ...

It is customary to print a disclaimer in novels, saying that the characters are fictitious and that no resemblance to any real person, living or dead, is intended. This is, in the case of this book, wholly true, in spite of the fact that some of the characters have names made famous by position and deeds. The reason is that, in each case, the characters portrayed are what the real-life characters would have been... if they had been someone other than the persons they were. 16 August 1983 8:20 ...

It was not very impressive, a metal cylinder about an inch high, fitted with connections and cooling fins. It could easily be carried in one hand. Yet this small object had a strong claim ...

Man Plus by Frederik Pohl One An Astronaut and His World It is necessary to tell you about Roger Torraway. One human being does not seem particularly important, when there are eight billion alive. Not more important than, for example, a single microchip in a memory store. But a single chip can be decisive when it carries an essential bit, and Torraway was important in just that way. He was a good-looking man, as people go. Famous, too. Or had been. There had been a time when Roger Torraway hung ...

Foundations Friends Stories in Honor of Isaac Asimov To Isaac, with love Preface by Ray Bradbury One of my favorite stories as a child was the one about the little boy who got a magical porridge machine functioning so wildly that it inundated the town with three feet of porridge. In order to walk from one house to the other, or head down-street, one had to head out with a large spoon, eating ones way to destinations near or far. A delightful concept, save that I imagined tomato soup and a thick ...
