MONDAY, May 2n at 7 pm: TRIFECTA OF SCI-FI DELIGHTS

Gyro digs deep into his seemingly endless collection of periodicals and anthology to bring three classic short stories to the story floor.

"The Guy with the Eyes" from The Callihan Chronicles by Spider Robinson, 1997
It's just another day in a bar where your drinking companion might be a time lord, a Martian, a robot or even an ordinary human.

"Hobbits" from Analog Magazine, Feb 1999
Little Evan dreamed an airplane "with monsters in it" crashed near his house on stormy night.  Now there's a hole in his front yard and he says "hobbits" live in it.  Just don't expect Bilbo or Frodo this time.

IF there is sufficient time left,
"Take a Deep Breath" by Arthur C. Clarke from Microcosmic Tales, 1957
There's been an accident on the space station.  Your compartment's air is running out.  Air and safety are only a few feet away.  In between is total vacuum and you don't have a space suit.

Gyro Muggins, live in voice.
