From an almost normal, almost everyday start, through an almost delightful, almost perfect interlude, to an almost sad and almost happy ending, John B. Rosenman’s Childhood’s Day is surely a science fiction classic writ small, and a story to treasure and remember. Of course, Winter’s not sure he wants to remember. What happened in the past has haunted and broken him. But nothing else has offered release, so now this one illegal act might be his last hope. A small boy tosses a ball. His parents smile. And every detail of sight, sound and smell, seems so real and so complete in this evocative tale. But the truth behind child, the past, and the man, is what will haunt the reader, as everything comes together in a perfectly drawn, perfectly timed and perfectly conceived conclusion. This is science fiction at its most powerful best. I love this short story and highly recommend it. Disclosure: I was lucky enough to be offered a free ecopy.
