In G. Allen Wilbanks’ Chasing Destiny
- Nate tells Laura he’s going to Stockton to meet his wife. To what extent is he telling the truth? In what way is his statement misleading?

- What would have happened if Nate had ignored his precognition of the collision?
In Andrew Godwin’s The Spoiler:

- Is Henry a space-alien spy?
- Why is Joanne “written out of the script,” so to speak?
- Which is Frank more likely to do first: read the address Joanne has given him or run for his life?
- If the story is the initial chapter in a longer work, how might the rest play out?
In Gary Beck’s Election Results
- Do “the people” ever agree unanimously about what they want or need?
- Does “the public” always know what it “wants to hear”?
- Do “the needs of the people” never “coincide with the efforts of [the people’s] leaders”?
- In real life, why do politicians at least attempt to keep their promises more often than they neglect them?
- Even in elections that are not fictitious, how often do “the people” get the government they need rather than the government they deserve?
- According to the poem, is democracy undesirable? If so, does it propose an alternative?
