Which Came First by William Rotsler Illustration by Darryl Elliott Its hard to run for your life carrying an egg as big as a watermelon. An egg is awkward to carry when its over a foot long, delicate, youre out of breath, and your side hurts. And its umpteen-ton mother is thundering along after you. You tend to look over your shoulder a lot and trip on roots and vines and maybe scream now and again. It was not the only dinosaur egg in the worldnot that world, anyway but if I could get a few ...

James Hadley Chase THE WHIFF OF MONEY One On this brilliantly sunny May morning, Paris was looking at its best. From his large office window, John Dorey, head of the French division of the Central Intelligence Agency, surveyed the trees with their fresh green foliage, the young girls in their new spring outfits and the Place de la Concorde, besieged as usual by traffic. He felt it was good to be alive. He glanced at the few files on his desk and was glad there was nothing for his immediate ...

John Marsden While I live CHAPTER 1 We were halfway up the spur when we heard it. Homer and Gavin and I, just the three of us. The spur was steep and the rocks were loose we slid back two metres for every three we climbed. It was about 1.15 p.m. A warm afternoon in May. It had been a hot autumn. Surrounding us was the bush, an army of twisted trees standing to attention. They wore grey-green uniforms and waved their bunches of leaves in endless useless motion. They were the army that never went ...

Erwin Mortier While the Gods Were Sleeping I I HAVE ALWAYS SHRUNK from the act of beginning. From the first word, the first touch. The restlessness when the first sentence has to be formed, and after the first the second. The restlessness and the excitement, as if you are pulling away the cloth beneath which a body rests: asleep or dead. There is also the desire, or the fantasy wish, to beat the pen into a ploughshare and plough a freshly written sheet clean again, across the lines, furrow after ...

Who knows John Segrave came of a family which had been slowly going down the hill for the last century. They had been landowners since the days of Elizabeth, but their last piece of property was sold. It was thought ...

Lord Rendalls Song was first published in my anthology Cuentos nicos Ediciones Siruela, Madrid, 1989 in apocryphal form, that is, attributed to the English writer James Denham and purportedly translated by me. For that reason, I also include at the beginning of the story the biographical note that appeared there, since some of the facts in it ...

Fresh snow gave a faint crunch as the riders horses made their way down the old road. Cold, tired, and hungry, Whill and Abram rode silently toward Fendale. Usually they would make camp with the setting of the sun, but not tonight. The storm they had encountered the previous two days had set them back many hours. We should still be in time for the Winters End Celebration, ...

There were horses, and jockeys in a rainbow of colours, and miles of green grass. There were massed banks of people, with pink oval faces, indistinguishable pink blobs from where I crouched in the stirrups, galloping past, straining with speed. Their mouths were open, and although I could hear no sound I knew they ...
