I am assuming that Cou...

Q: short sci-fi story about a metphysician

MacBeaneI recall reading a very good short story about a metaphysician. He could identify intentions and motives almost instantly, and the culminating incident was when he quickly identified a group of people and weapons in a room, and take action before they had a chance to move. I read it in the 80s, o...

Q: Show or film where "stranger" is a low-key compliment?

Protector oneI saw a film or episode of a show last week, where one of the major characters was repeatedly called "stranger" by a minor character.

Q: Short story where legal disputes are resolved by computer-simulated battles

DavidWI believe I read this in the mid-to-late 1980s, quite possibly in Analog. I don't recall the justification, but legal disputes (as between corporations or countries) are sometimes resolved in a form of virtual trial by combat, where 2 professional gamer-players operate either side of a historical...

Q: An Asian (possibly Chinese) movie/series in which the reincarnation of the antagonist's lover turns out to be one of the main protagonists

ClockworkThis was an Asian movie/serie my parents watched a few years ago (before 2018, although I'm not entirely sure when exactly). Most likely Chinese, but it could also be Vietnamese; unlikely to be Korean nor Japanese, although I wouldn't rule them out entirely either. The movie was in full colour an...
