I am looking for the title and author of a short story about an alien abduction. The abduction itself was a major plot twist-- the story was about a farmer, but very abruptly, the farmer is abducted.
Hive authors: help me publish a sci-fi story! [more inside]
ID That Story: novel (novella? short story?) in which a man is standing in line. Pretty much the entire story is his experience while waiting in line. It's a future/dystopia story. The man is waiting in line to make a complaint. He falls in love with the girl in front of him, though she's not allowed to turn and look at him. It's a parable about overpopulation. It was probably written in the 60s or 70s. That's all I remember.
Help me find the (prolific, I think) short story writer I read in high school! Fuzzy, mixed up memories inside. [more inside]
