3 Quotations from Stephen Baxter

ant-man n. 1995 S. Baxter Ant-Men of Tibet in Interzone May 11 The nearest Ant-Man took a single, angular step towards me. He was perhaps five feet all. His legs were so thin they were more like bare bones, I thought, than fleshy limbs. His body seemed segmented…. His head was a sort of pear-shape.
