This was actually a hybrid, since halfway through, I realized I had a big book of HG Wells stories. So when I wasn't reading on the pocketPC, I was reading the paper book. I didn't actually mean to read this, since I'm in the mood for funnier stories lately. I saw it and 'From the Earth to the Moon' at the same time, and intended to get the latter. But when I opened my PPC later, I realized I had only copied this one over. It's the story the horror movie 'Hollow Man' was based off of, one of the movies we sold in our purging of r-rated movies. Still, I guess it's a cult/sci-fi classic... so now I've read it!
