(Book 11 in the Oltion Library of Short Stories series)
A Novella by

Medicinal advice changes over time. Eggs are good for you, then they're bad for you, then they're good again. Meat is bad. No, wait, meat is good! And alcohol - what a roller coaster that has been. Here's a very short story (just 675 words) about where we could wind up if the coaster flies completely off the tracks.
"What's a Nice Girl Like You..." is the 11th volume in the collected short stories of Jerry Oltion. Jerry has had his short stories published in most of the major science fiction venues and has had several successful novels, including four highly acclaimed Star Trek books. He has become the most published author in the history of Analog magazine. His stories have won the Nebula award, the Endeavor award, the Seiun award, and have been nominated multiple times for the Hugo award. His stories are often humorous, with likeable characters using intelligence and competence (as opposed to force and violence) to solve their problems. His style harks back to the golden age of science fiction, yet with a modern sensibility and relevance. Even his earliest works hold up well today - and on into the future.
