This may be the most brutal and controversial novelette that David Gerrold has ever written. An attempted gay-bashing of a crippled war vet leads to a scream-of-consciousness unraveling of a terrifying past and the ultimate discovery of a new human possibility. After its publication in the February 2006 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction several subscribers actually cancelled their subscriptions in protest. This story is an unflinching look at souls in transformation.

Contains strong language and vivid descriptions of sex and violence. Not recommended for young or impressionable readers. Please keep your seat belt fastened tightly. (Novelette)

The Martian Child (Novelette)

What happens when a science fiction writer adopts a little boy who says he's from Mars? Prepare to be enchanted.

David Gerrold's bittersweet memoir of his son's adoption was rejected by six editors before it finally found a home in the September 1994 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Readers fell in love with it immediately and awarded the story the Hugo, the Nebula, and the Locus Readership award for Best Novelette of the Year. It was also the basis for the 2007 movie Martian Child, starring John Cusack and Amanda Peet.

This hilarious and moving account of the poignant adventure of parenthood is the author's personal favorite. With a new afterword, special for this edition.

The Strange Disappearance
And
Equally Strange Reappearance
Of David Gerrold

What happens when a science fiction writer takes a wrong turn?

David Gerrold writes to his editor about his bizarre peripatetic journey through the northwest wilderness and his accidental encounter with one of the legendary "green people" and his even more bizarre trek to uncover the truth behind the mystery. Originally published in two parts in the January 2007 and the April 2007 issues of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, this novelette reveals the author's keen eye for detail as well as his mordant sense of humor. A deliciously vicious journey! Warning! There are terrible puns in this tale.
