Comments for The Lost Pilgrim
The third story in Science Fiction: The Best of 2004 is "The Lost Pilgrim" by Gene Wolf. Unfortunately I've misplaced the book so this review will be the last until I find the book.
A Chrononaut ends up sailing with the Argonauts. I really want to say that the Chrononaut's name was Jason but he's only ever known as the Pilgrim.
It takes a while for the Pilgrim to get his bearing in time and space so the first few pages of the story don't make much sense. Slow though things start to come into focus and the story isn't the crossing of the Mayflower as planned but the voyage of the Argos.
Of the three stories I've read so far, this one comes in just behind "The Best Christmas Ever."
I hate it when I lose a book. Just last week I left Lisa Scottoline's latest book, Lady Killer, at my sister's house. She lives 7 hours away. So I went to the library and they have it in the back room, but it's not processed yet. I'm dying to get back to it. "
Losing a book frustrates me to no end. "
