I can see it! I am really can! An entire plot based on Five More Minutes.

Of course, to work on that, I would have to set Nick Aames aside for a while...

Nick doesn't strike me as the kind of person who takes kindly to being ignored. Unless he wants to be, that is.

Saw this image by artist 'Ionut Caras' and immediately thought of The Prayer Ladder by Marina. (from Galaxy's Edge)

Working up the courage to climb that ladder would be a story in itself.

A parachute would be considered a necessary accessory.

Read "To See the Invisible Man." My first Robert Silverberg story. Ingenious. Mesmerizing. Utterly believable. I can count on one hand the number of speculative fiction short stories I've read that I would choose if I were a literature textbook editor or literature teacher. This is one of them.

Just to keep you on your toes, the next interview is with George R.R. Martin. And the same issue
will have a brand-new Draco's Tavern story from Larry Niven, and also a new story by Mercedes
Lackey. Not bad for a magazine that no one thought would live 3 issues. :-)
