Here is the original novella, “One” by Nancy Kress, available on This novella was acquired for by consulting editor Ellen Datlow.

Every month, Tor posts stories on their website (see the link section at the top of this article) along with excerpts from novels, comics and articles. They are free so I recommend you check them out. Each new story will be reviewed separately. This was one of five stories posted July 17, 2013 to celebrate’s fifth anniversary.

"One" by Nancy Kress -- Zack Murphy is a boxer who has had brain surgery for a tumor. He also recently had a concussion. They had all combined to do something to his brain so he could hear their thoughts or know what they were going to do. This is of great help in the ring. But there are many other things that happen to him and the story takes quite a few turns.

Zack can be pretty nasty jerk, but you want him to find what he is looking for. Well done.
