Free Fiction Monday: Voyeuristic Tendencies
Maggie knows things. She reads a person’s thoughts and uses that information to make a living. But when she meets the old man, everything changes. He knows things he shouldn’t, things that threaten Maggie’s sense of security. He also says he knows her future. And that terrifies her more than anything. Providing a whole new perspective to a beloved classic, “Voyeuristic Tendencies” is an homage to Robert Silverberg’s novel Dying Inside.
“Voyeuristic Tendencies” by Hugo Award-winning author Kristine Kathryn Rusch is available for free on this website for one week only. The story’s also available on Kobo, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and in other online retail stores, and in print in The Book of Silverberg.

Loved the brilliant idea of mind surfing.!
I’ve had the ability to see fully dressed people naked since puberty.it ain that pretty:)
Bravo for the insight! Remind me of a similar Frederick Pohl novel, except his was too “stream of consciousness” for my tastes. Very deep digging, in about 6000 words! Thanks.
Oops! It was a Silverberg novel, not Pohl. It happens when I’m too far from my bookshelves!
Very real. Thought provoking. Thank you.
