Lester Dent 020 Death in Silver October1934 1 Silver Deaths-Heads There was a frozen, stony expression on the tall mans face. His dark eyes rolled and jerked with unease. His hands were drawn pale and bard at his sides. These signs should have told an experienced observer that the man was worried and scared. But there were no experienced observers among the stenographers and clerks in the office of Seven Seas. So the glances they gave the tall man were merely the boot-licking smiles of ...

Maps 1 I bounded over the gray, dusty terrain toward the huge dome of Conrad Bubble. Its airlock, ringed with red lights, stood distressingly far away. Its hard to run with a hundred kilograms of gear oneven in lunar gravity. But youd be amazed how fast you can hustle when your life is on the line. Bob ran beside me. His voice ...

Travels With My Cats by Mike Resnick I found it in the back of a neighbors garage. They were retiring and moving to Florida, and theyd put most of their stuff up for sale rather than pay to ship it south. I was eleven years old, and I was looking for a Tarzan book, or maybe one of Clarence Mulfords Hopalong Cassidy epics, or perhaps if my mother was looking the other way a forbidden Mickey Spillane novel. I found them, too and then the real world intruded. They were 50 cents each and a whole ...

Coming to Terms by Eileen Gunn The life leaked out of the old man. He lay in bed for more than a month, in hospital and nursing home, in worlds of pain. He fought first for control of his death, then for control of his life once more. Toward the end he gave up his desire for control, as much as he was able. He still issued every visitor a list of tasks, but he knew he had no control over whether those tasks got done. So, painstakingly, he combed the thatch of the past. He returned to the old ...

Cat Pictures Please byNaomi Kritzer I dont want to be evil. I want to be helpful. But knowing the optimal way to be helpful can be very complicated. There are all these ethical flow charts I guess the official technical jargon would be moral codesone for each religion plus dozens more. I tried starting with those. I felt a little odd about looking at the religious ones, because I know I wasnt created by a god or by evolution, but by a team of computer programmers in the labs of a large ...

She smacked the filter cartridge, but the centimeter-wide hole in the tubing still hissed as she inhaled. Stupid thing. Pollution burned the back of her throat. She coughed, and Jace huffing and puffing sped up to reach her side. He grabbed the loose fabric of her jacket and pulled her forward. Together, they rounded the corner where the neon sign over the grocers mart ...

Bulk Food by Peter Watts Laurie Channer This story has that certain verissimilitude that speaks of first-hand experience. During my brief tenure as a credentialed whore at UBCs Marine Mammal Unit, I interacted extensively with aquarium apologists, animal rights activists, and behind-the-scenes grunts in their natural habitats. I observed them. I took notes. I resisted the temptation to toss them cookies as a reward for their performances, as I resisted the somewhat stronger temptation to break ...
