* David James Poissant's "Lizard Man" (short story, non-genre)

Not very uncommon rift between father & adolescent son that will lead to their never speaking in later life. Story has two cases - one where the rift is there till father's death; second where the dad is initiating patch up steps. Also included is a completely tangent subplot of rescuing an alligator.
