The Tunnel Under The World by Frederik Pohl Guy Burckhardt wakes up screaming, but can't remember the nightmare that caused his fright. Slowly over the next couple of days he comes to realize he's been reliving the same day over and over. And things only get stranger and more frightening from there. One of the true classics of science fiction. This famous Pohl story explores cybernetic robots and implanted personalities. A scathing satire on our advertising-dominated consumer culture, a frightening piece of urban paranoia, and an exploration of the nature of reality. Part One (19 to 23 min.)
