The Affinities by Robert Charles Wilson PART ONE A House on a Winter Night When an obscure data-management company launched what it called the Affinities a couple of years ago, almost no one paid attention. It was a quixotic idea that seemed to gain no traction: there was no ad campaign outside of a few media outlets in a few major cities, and not much press coverage even in those markets. But something surprising was happening under the radar Invited as a special guest to a local meeting, I ...

Vortex by Robert Charles Wilson Chapter One Sandra and Bose No more, Sandra Cole thought when she woke up in her sweltering apartment. Today was the last day she would drive to work and spend her day in the company of emaciated prostitutes, addicts in the first sweaty stages of withdrawal, chronic liars, petty criminals. Today was the day she would hand in her resignation. She woke every weekday morning with the same thought. It hadnt been true yesterday. It wasnt true today. But someday it ...

Divided by Infinity by Robert Charles Wilson 1. In the year after Lorraines death I contemplated suicide six times. Contemplated it seriously, I mean: six times sat with the fat bottle of clonazepam within reaching distance, six times failed to reach for it, betrayed by some instinct for life or disgusted by my own weakness. I cant say I wish I had succeeded, because in all likelihood I did succeed, on each and every occasion. Six deaths. No, not just six. An infinite number. Times six. There ...

Julian: A Christmas Story by Robert Charles Wilson 1 This is a story about Julian Comstock, better known as Julian the Agnostic or after his uncle Julian Conqueror. But it is not about his conquests, such as they were, or his betrayals, or about the War in Labrador, or Julians quarrels with the Church of the Dominion. I witnessed many of those eventsand will no doubt write about them, ultimatelybut this narrative concerns Julian when he was young, and I was young, and neither of us was famous. 2 ...

A Hidden Place by Robert Charles Wilson Prelude: Bone in California Bone was the only one awake on the flatcar as the train labored out of the mountains and into the fog-choked valley, and it was Bone who saw the railroad cop. He was only dimly aware of the danger. It was deep night, morning not far off, late in spring. The air was bitingly cold and damp. Bone was lucky he had stolen a thick Navy pea coat the week before. He wore it now, pulled tight in one hand because he could not button it ...

Prologue Tonight, the President of the United States said, as we gaze at the sky and wonder at what we see there, our minds are crowded with questions. It was an Everest of understatement, Matt Wheeler thought. He regarded the Presidents solemn face as it flickered in the blue aura of the TV screen. The man had aged in office, as presidents often do. Much of that aging, it seemed to Matt, ...
