g slower than the most backward snail, and a dead man at the wheel of it. I went to it, opened the door, and put on the brake. I realized after a time that the man was not dead.

****.

Good story of a man who wakes up one day to find everything moving sixty times slower. A mysterious being shows him it was no accident and could be controlled, but there is a cost.

An interesting plot of a man in a predicament of having a gift.
