The Time-Lapsed Man

Emerging from flux after three months of mind-pushing a starship through the nada-continuum, Thorn realised he could not hear. He was on his second drink, an hour later, when a sound startled him. But it was the wrong sound... Classic short science fiction, and winner of the 1988 Interzone poll for best story of the year.
