Guest of Honor (Robert Reed)

The text version can be found here.

Read by Kate Baker

An interstellar traveler becomes increasingly disenchanted with the means by which she will keep Earth's bored immortals entertained, both because it involves what on the one hand someone could call a form of immortality and on the other a form of mass cannibalism, and because these people are not worth her sacrifices.

This was first published in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, June 1993.

Death death death! But you know, that's tons better than SET's rape rape rape.

Finger of Doom (Cornell Woolrich)

A young man on a date grudgingly allows his fiance to run a small errand for her boss, only to have her vanish mid-errand. Worse, when he calls the cops in there's little evidence to show she existed at all, let alone disappeared into what proves to be an unoccupied apartment.

This made liberal use of foreign, accent and dark skinned as signals of nogoodnikery. It really was not very good.

If you’re an aficionado of passive-aggressive fannish xenophobia, in which the frothing distrust of people who aren’t just like you is couched in language designed to give the appearance of being reasonable until you squint at it closely, then you’re not going to want to miss this piece by Baen publisher Toni Weisskopf.
