- "Sisters," in which high school students find maturity and family by confronting a tragic genetic destiny;
- "Tangents," winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards, about a persecuted scientist who seeks refuge in a better world;
- "Dead Run," a tale of union truck drivers ferrying souls through Death Valley into Hell, adapted for an episode of the television series The Twilight Zone;
- "Sleepside Story," which Bear calls one of his favorite pieces, an urban fantasy tale that takes a music student by Night Metro to the Sleepside mansion of a magical woman of the night, inverting "Beauty and the Beast" in a very modern mirror;
- "Genius," the screenplay written for the television series Outer Limits, but never produced. Just Over the Horizon combines Bear's intense concern with the human condition with a deep understanding of science, resulting in a collection long to be remembered.
