    "Twenty-two SF and fantasy stories, including 'The Fog Horn,' about a sea monster that loves a fog horn; 'The Pedestrian,' the classic tale of a walker who is lonely because everyone is watching television; 'A Sound of Thunder,' where a time-safari to hunt tyrannosaurus rex alters the present because a hunter accidentally kills a butterfly; and the title story, about a spaceship that flies into the Sun's atmosphere to capture part of its substance. Emphasis on message and characters, rather than science."

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
