Modus Vivendi

Today Project Gutenberg adds one of John Berryman's series of stories involving psychokinesis that he wrote under the pseudonym Walter Bupp. They mistakenly attribute the story to Randall Garrett. John Clute addressed this misconception in the Encyclopedia of SF, writing that, "...Walter Bupp is not a pseudonym for Randall Garrett, as often listed."

Update: They caught the error and now correctly attribute the story to Berryman.

"Modus Vivendi" by John Berryman

"It's undoubtedly difficult to live with someone who is Different. He must, because he is Different, live by other ways. But what makes it so difficult is that, for some reason he thinks you are Different!"
