Near the hole everything goes perfectly or you die quickly. I sipped at the water and tried to think clearly. He reached into his coat pocket and took out a credit slip.
"This will pay your legal debts." He placed the slip on the table. "This will pay your casino debts." He placed another slip on the table. "This is the fee that remains." He placed a third slip on the table.

"Mr. Reinfeld, try to understand. You have no choice, and no options. You will go back to the black hole, and you will take me with you as your passenger....."
Meet new parents, so frantic for sleep they turn desperate when dealing with their infant. Meet an alien so different, mental contact with it causes instant death. Travel into the depths of a black hole, to the romantic vistas of a too-intelligent car, to the eye of a hurricane while flying blind. Join Bill Johnson on this incredible journey through eleven science fiction dreams and speculations, including his Hugo Award winning "We Will Drink a Fish Together."
