1st thought - Are you thinking of The Emissary, but not with a happy get together as one would think?! "Good dog or Bad dog!" You decide.
Yes, "Story of Love."
Later when thinking about my Emissary suggestion, I had to chuckle. Would Reader's Digest run such a story ? I think not!

That sounds a bit like this new movie Birth
, there we have a woman who seems to find her former husband reincarnated in a ten year old boy... It just started in our cinemas and I'm very curious about it. More so as I've grown quiet fond of Nicole Kidman since I saw her acting Virginia Woolf in "The Hours" and realised what a good actress she is!
As I take it, the film has been running in the US since the end of October -- has anyone seen it? Can you recommend it?
Unfortunately I haven't had an opportunity to read "Story of Love" yet -- gotta find a copy of that collection soon!

I am surprised "The Fireman" does not appear in Stories or RBStories, or anywhere else for that matter! I found that it was anthologized in WM Nolan's Origins of Science Fiction, 1980 (I believe).
Would any of you have a lead on getting a copy of this somehow. I was considering covering it as a prelude to F451 in upcoming SF class. I know it was in Galaxy('50?) as a ss originally, but costs are often prohibitive for such an ebay try. Thanks for any ideas.

fjpalumbo: There are currently three used copies of the 1980 paperback collection SCIENCE FICTION ORIGINS, edited by William F. Nolan and Martin Greenberg, listed on the Advanced Book Exchange ("ABE"), a great website for finding used books, both common and rare. The three copies range in price from $4.50 to $5.00. Just go to the following link, and type in your search. Ordering on-line using a credit card from the stores that have the book is pretty simple. Here's the link: http://www.abebooks.com
Richard, Yes! Good idea. In a hurry - I hadn't thought about this. I have done purchases with "Abebooks" before and have had success in the exchanges. Thanks much, this should do it.
