2023, issue 205. How have you liked each of these stories who brought to you in October?


Again, we couldn't have done this without your help. So if you're

Our story is titled friend. Thank you so much.


Our story is titled Timothy and Oral History and is by Michael Swanwick.


Michael Swanwick has been writing for over 40 years, during which time he published 11 novels, over 150 stories and countless works of Flash Fiction. He has received The Nebula, Theodore Sturgeon, and World Fantasy Awards as well as Five Hugo Awards.


He is best known for the Nebula winning science fiction novel Stations of the Tide and for his Iron Dragon Fantasy trilogy.


Swanwick lives in Philadelphia with his wife Marion Porter.


Swanwick is no stranger here at Clark's World either, with stories titled


The Last Days of Old Night, Artificial People, for I have laying me down on the stone of loneliness


and I'll not be back again. Ancient engines and the very pulse of the machine.


So my dear listener, I hope you can sit back,


enjoy this last story we have for you


for the month of October,


but fear not because we have another slate of stories coming to you for November, and let me tell you a story.


L.L. W. Humboldt. Professor of Genomic Obstetrics, Stanford University School of Medicine.


Because I could, that's why.


Because the technology was there, and if I didn't do it, somebody else would.


Because I, perhaps naively, expected the acclaim of a grateful world, and quite possibly a Nobel Prize. But chiefly, I did of the


name of the Grateful World and quite possibly a Nobel Prize,


but chiefly I did it because the science was so beautiful.
