First words
King Dragon by Michael Swanwick - The Dragons Came at dawn, flying low and in formation, their jets so thnderous they shoot the ground like the great throbbing heartbeat of the world.
The Big Green Grin by Gahan Wilson - The green grin began at one edge of the vacant lot behind a flattened plastic garbage can which had been mauled the previous winter during a sloppy snow removal, then swept through many yards of tousled weeds and scraggly grass grown tall and thick through a hot, humid summer and finally terminated at the lot's other edge amid the roots of a young oak which was the only tree present.
The Book of Martha by Octavia E. Butler - "It's difficult, isn't it?"
Wild Thing by Charles Coleman Finlay - He was the sort of boy who always had a stick in his hand unless he chanced to have a stone.
Closing Time by Neil Gaiman - There are still clubs in London.
