Welcome to TSAT #30, the Sly Squirrel special issue! We presented the Squirrely One with a challenge -- could he write enough stories to fill up an entire issue, all by himself? -- and boy howdy, did he ever come through! Fifteen (count 'em, 15) separate and distinct stories, each one its own window on a world of Sly's creation. Observe the life cycle of a new technology, from the first working model to the last commercial version. Observe and read...
The Tale of the Tank
by Sly Squirrel
Reflected in the inventor's shining eyes...
You Can't Go Home Again
"Don't it always seem to go
"You don't know what you got 'til it's gone?"
Hey, This One'll Kill You!
God isn't the only one who laughs when you make plans.
One Man's Garbage...
Obsession is beautiful -- from the inside.
The Upper Card
'The Eye of the Tiger'? Hah! Rocky was a wimp...
All I Want
...is the one I love.
What happens when reality isn't enough.
The End of All Cares
Can technology touch the spirit?
Don't Tell Me You Do
Yes, breaking up is hard to do.
Thrill of the Hunt
See what happens when need and want coincide.
Whatever else changes, greed will always be a constant.
The first one isn't free -- but it's cheap.
Both Sides Now
Is the grass greener on the other side?
Anything can be abused. Anything.
Today's advanced technology is tomorrow's toy.
