REPLAY

Ken Grimwood

In 1988, forty-three-year-old Jeff Winston died of a heart attack. But then he awoke, and it was 1963; Jeff was eighteen all over again, his memory intact. This time around, Jeff would gain all the power and wealth he never had before. This time around he'd know how to do it right. . .
Until the next time.

SLEEPOVER

by Alastair Reynolds

Our protagonist, Gaunt, is in cryo sleep, having gone under expecting to wake up in a wonderful future that included immortality. What a shock to find that tomorrow is not just worse than today, it is a nightmare that he never thought might happen.

HARRINGTON
Short Stories for English Language Learners
AND WHITEHILL

The social outsider and his ultimate revenge on the insiders is one of O'Hara's specialties. In “Harrington and Whitehill” a once‐abused orphan finds himself pulling even with his rival. O'Hara looked in his spleen, rather than his heart, when he wrote this story, but it is a deft, disciplined performance.
