The Questioner has his answer, but for the benefit of anyone else who happens to be reading these Q's & A's, the second story (with the travel agent) is a famous classic, "Of Missing Persons" by Jack Finney.

Expertise

I have read most of the short stories and books produced by the Top 80-100 authors in the SF field, as well as more obscure authors such as Robert Sheckley, and can answer any queries regarding author, title or theme of a science fiction short story(or novel). I can also answer questions on the history and influence of Science Fiction past to present, as well as on specific SF genres such as Cyberpunk,Golden Age SF, H G Wells-style scientific romances etc. I do not answer questions about books/stories set in the Fantasy genre.

Experience

Am currently doing a writing course for writing Science Fiction Books, with the Writer's Bureau in the UK.<

Education/Credentials
Am considering becoming an amateur writer of Science Fiction. Other than that, no academic credentials, I simply have read a multitude of SF books and stories, with an emphasis on stories from H G Wells to the 1980s.
