many such stories.  The best (in my opinion) is E for Effort and here is the Wikipedia entry    This story appears in the excellent anthology Science Fiction

2016-07-21 Can't remember the title of the short story:

sorry,  never read this one.  the closest I can think of is Time for the Stars by Robert Heinlein.  An astronaut returns form space after many years.  He has barely aged, and his twin who remained on earth

2016-07-04 Title inquiry:

never read this one.  Sorry.  Sounds like one of the John Carter of Mars series.    I can recommend the Time Scout series by Robert Asprin, one of the books in the series has a gladiators-in-Rome theme

2016-06-12 Idetifying A book on dream machines:

Sorry - never read this one.  I can recommend two stories - one is about dream machines and the other a similar government agency type story.    The first is by Isaac Asimov titled Dreaming is a Private

2016-05-27 Short Story Identification:

sorry , never read the first one.  Read the second one, but unfortuantely I can't remember the title or author, either.    But I can recommend two stories where the protagonist can't tell anyone about
