Telescope is a short story cycle about Lawrence Teitel, the protagonist of Weiss's earlier collection, Living Room. Here, we follow Lawrence from the ages of twelve to seventeen. A telescope is a device for seeing distant objects; similarly, the stories deal with seeing distances from his family.

Allan Weiss is a Professor in the Departments of English and Humanities. He is a creative writer and scholar with a variety of interests. He has published mainstream/literary, science fiction, and fantasy short stories in numerous periodicals and anthologies.
