Borrowed Time

(2013)
A collection of stories by

 
 
The centerpiece of Borrowed Time is "Betty Knox and Dictionary Jones in the Mystery of the Missing Teenage Anachronisms." When you've traveled through time and are stuck in the body of your 15-year-old self, it isn't the best time to have some other time travelers looking to kill you. Especially when the person who's supposed to be keeping an eye out for the bad guys is stuck in his own 15-year-old body. And it's 1964: when you're both 15 and your parents don't want you spending time alone, how are you going to save your lives? SFRevu called this story "one of the most enjoyable reads I've had in a long time." In four interlinked short stories, Temporal Interventionists Tom and Pam meet cute, then work together to solve some of history's greatest mysteries. Discover the real origin of the Spanish Flu. Learn why a massive and mysterious explosion in 1908 happened to occur in the world's least-inhabited region. Consider the possibility that the development of ironclad warships by both the South and the North at the exact same time during the American Civil War might have been more than coincidence. And why don't we know exactly who fired the Shot Heard Round the World, the lone gunshot that started the American Revolution? In "Joan," Kate is a time-traveling researcher who's gotten a little too close to Joan of Arc both in time and emotionally. With no distance, scientific or otherwise, what will happen when she has a chance to rescue Joan from being burnt at the stake? Our journey through time concludes with "Crow's Feat," when a skeptical writer goes back to Elizabethan England to discover the true author of Shakespeare's plays.
