Eight time-travelers bounce back to the age of giant beasts, determined to hunt down and kill a T-Rex.

Short Stories

Crystallization

This is the ultimate traffic nightmare—city-wide gridlock. In this savagely satirical view of the near future, vehicular traffic in Los Angeles finally loses its liquidity, transforming into slow-moving slush, then finally hardening into sun-baked mud. With cars and trucks and buses paralyzed across a hundred miles of freeway parking lot, the city grinds to a painful stop—or does it?

The Kennedy Enterprise

In an alternate timeline, John F. Kennedy goes into acting instead of politics and ends up as captain of the starship Enterprise.

But what if history has its own plan for JFK? This ferocious satire of Hollywood, Star Trek, and the politics of the 60's is sure to keep you laughing ... right up to the last poignant moment.

Franz Kafka, Superhero!

The further adventures of ROACH-MAN in his continuing battle against his terrifying arch-nemesis, the villainous Sigmund Freud!








The Seminar From Hell

The devil has always been an expert in marketing, but the old fashioned way of recruiting souls just doesn’t work in a modern technological age. Here's what happens when Hell gets rebranded.

Have you ever been invited to a guest event for one of those courses that promises you everything? Well, this one has them all beat. Here's the ultimate deal with the devil story--a scathingly sacrilegious examination of modern theology done as a parody of the human potential movement, darkly disturbing, and ultimately poignant.

A Wish For Smish

You know the drill. Rub the magic lamp and a genie appears, promising to grant you three wishes. But the wishes always have a trap in them. What happens when a Hollywood lawyer draws up the contract? (This one is based on a real lawyer, because the best revenge is a literary one!)

Novelettes

thirteen o'clock

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.

Chester

Annie is six years old. Something bad lives in her dreams and now it’s trying to get out. A very scary story that will haunt you long after you read its hysterical last line.

Novellas

Turtledome

When we finally start building stations on the moon, it won’t just be scientists and astronauts and engineers. We’ll also have students and trainees earning serious credits for their internships. A team of young scouts travels to Luna to help build the largest dome yet.

But what if everything on Luna is not what it appears to be? And what if the scouts are not just scouts either? In this Heinlein-inspired novella, the future isn’t what it used to be. (This story is a two-generations removed prequel to Ganny Knits A Spaceship.)

In The Quake Zone

Time-quakes are disrupting Los Angeles in the sixties. A soul-scarred Vietnam vet takes a job as a time-raveler, sewing up the loose threads of unraveled lives, but now he's on a case that threatens to unravel his own life. Why are young men are disappearing from West Hollywood? Is there a serial killer preying on the nascent gay community? Or is there some darker force at work? A brilliant and disturbing short novel, gritty and realistic, filled with recognizable details. This crossover mix of science fiction and noir mystery evokes a not-yet-forgotten time and place on the threshold of change. Selected by Gardner Dozois for inclusion in The Year's Best Science Fiction: Twenty-Third Annual Collection (2006) and winner of the 2007 Spectrum Award for Best Short Fiction, it's a stunning depiction of a forgotten slice of gay life before Stonewall. In The Quake Zone is a journey into one man's heart of darkness and what it takes to come out the other side. This is David Gerrold writing at his passionate best. Contains mature material.

(Some readers have speculated that the hero of this short novel is an alternate-world version of the hero in thirteen o'clock. What do you think?)

Two Meditations On King Kong

You come home from the movies, you’ve had a good time, you go to the fridge to get a snack, and suddenly, while standing in front of a day-old box of cold pizza, you stop and say, “Hey! If E.T. could fly away at the end of the movie, why didn’t he do that at the beginning? That’s the Refrigerator Door Question.

Here are The Unanswered Questions from the 1933 classic adventure,King Kong, followed by King Kong, Behind The Scenes. This is the movie they should have made, an hysterical homage to the movie that started it all—and a whole new way to think about one of the greatest Hollywood monsters of all.

The Satanic Limericks


The Satanic Limericks

     A collection of verses depraved,
     Vulgar, perverse, and unshaved.
          Several are crude,
          The worst are quite lewd,
     and the remainder are not well-behaved.
