Clifton, Mark: Sense From Thought Divide. v1 08 June 2008

Mark Clifton won the Hugo Award in 1955 for his novel They Would Rather Be Right. This is a novella by Clifton from the March 1955 Astounding Science Fiction magazine.

Clifton worked as a personnel manager, and many of his shorts were the adventures of the fictional personnel manager Ralph Kennedy, who discovered and encouraged employees who had psi abilities. This is one of those stories and is centered around the thought:

do X, believes he can't, and believes he is pretending he can?


Text is from PG
