Sorry: Wrong Dimension

With QuasarDragon taking a well earned break from blogging I thought I'd take up a bit of the slack by listing the new additions of classic sf stories to Project Gutenberg.

The Aggravation of Elmer by Robert Arthur (Galaxy Science Fiction, May 1955)

"The world would beat a path to Elmer's door—but he had to go carry the door along with him!"

The Altar at Midnight by C. M. Kornbluth (Galaxy Science Fiction, November 1952)

"Doing something for humanity may be fine—for humanity—but rough on the individual!"

Sorry: Wrong Dimension by Ross Rocklynne (Amazing Stories, March 1954)

"So the baby had a pet monster. And so nobody but baby could see it. And so a couple of men dropped out of thin air to check and see if the monster was licensed or not. So what's strange about that?"

The Game of Rat and Dragon by Cordwainer Smith (Galaxy Science Fiction, October 1955)

"Only partners could fight this deadliest of wars—and the one way to dissolve the partnership was to be personally dissolved!"
