  Resolved Question: How do I cite in MLA
I read the short story, Sci-Fi Genre, "Blackscatter" by Gregory Benford on Tor.com How would I list this on my Works Cited page? (Given that I read this story ONLINE and not in print-- I know how to MLA cite books that are in print but not sure how to cite a short story I read over the internet) And this is for an Analysis paper that I have written. Also according to what I read on Purdue Owl, I do not need to cite page numbers for in-text citations because there are no page numbers, the story was layed out on a single page so anytime I reference a specific detail or quote a character in the story I will put (Benford) after that quote, or piece of information.

  Resolved Question: Science Fiction book
One of my friends told me about a book he read 20+ years ago. Scientists create miniature planets in an extremely large chamber and study them. They discover that some of the planets had living organisms on them and some of those planets turned red after some time. They concluded that the organisms had evolved to a technological stage and must have reached full planetary nuclear destruction. My friend doesn't remember the name. However, he may have confused the title with John Steinbeck's "The Pearl." He seems to believe that the scientists referred to those planets as "Pearls." Has anyone ever read this story? Please help!
