Bears Discover Fire

Bears Discover Fire is one of the world's most loved science fiction short stories written by award winning author Terry Bisson. It is a truly unique "tall tale" with no logical conclusion and leaves it interpretation entirely up to the reader.

A Strange Phenomenon

The narrator begins the story telling of how his nephew, his brother , and himself had a flat tire on the way to see their mother in the "old folks home" . While changing a flat on the side of the road with a faulty flashlight, they first encounter the bears holding torches of fire. They had heard such stories but doubted their existence.

Serenity Prayer

Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things that I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Amen
