Short Stories, I almost Remember
The first short story is about a man that gets kidnapped by aliens, they take him apart examine him and then put him back together. he awakens in a cage and discovers he is on display in an alien zoo. he decides to try and escape by using stomach acid (Bile) on the bars of his cage. after awhile the bars weaken enough he can get out and he makes a run for it. the aliens try and shoot him down, but they did a better job than they knew when they put him back together and their weapons have no effect. he makes it to the spaceport and steals a spaceship. it either ends there or I don't rember the rest.
The second one I rember almost nothing about. it is about a man that learns to use his mind. I don't remember all he can do. at one point he is attacked and uses his mind to either put up a shield or just stop the projectiles. and the last thing is I think he gets caught in a place he can't get out of and they try to destroy him and he finally figures out how to teleport and saves himself.
I know, not a lot to go on, but maybe someone remember more than me.
It's funny the short stories that come to mind years after you've read them. it's been 25 or 30 years I'm thinking.
Thanks for your time Everyone.
