Synopsis

Enemy Mine

Hugo- and Nebula-winning Novella which inspired the 20th Century Fox motion picture starring Dennis Quaid and Lou Gossett, Jr.

This is the story of a man, incomplete in himself, taught to be a human by his sworn enemy, an alien being who leaves with the human its most important possession: its future.

The time is the future and a savage war rages between Earth and the planet Dracon, which is inhabited by intelligent, lizard-like creatures. An earth pilot and a Dracon creature both crash-land on the fiery, barren planet Fyrine IV. The two sworn enemies can think only of destroying each other, until they come to realize the only way either will survive is for both to overcome their undying hatred.

Another Orphan

Hugo-nominated and Nebula-winning Novella

Patrick Fallon is an analyst working on the Chicago stock exchange. An ex 'longhair', the man found himself in need of real employment as the exigencies of life made their demands and the counter-culture movement drew to a close. Starting as a runner, Fallon worked his way up to stock analyst in a few years, and at the opening of the story is leading a standard yuppie life in the metro area with a girlfriend he's unsure he loves. Mundane to the max, Fallon feels little motivation or excitement in life, and moreover, is unaware of the lack.

Waking up on a whaling ship at sea in the opening pages, however, existence takes on a whole new dynamic - one he quickly realizes is a manifestation of Herman Melville's Moby Dick. The novel coming alive around him, life at sea in contrast to life in Chicago, and the questions which arise as a result, provide a context to existence Fallon never had. (synopsis by Speculiction)
