If we could look into the future, we could see crimes before they happen. We could also prevent accidental deaths. Insurance companies could offer a completely different kind of policy, and politicians who campaigned on platforms of law and order could actually deliver. That might all seem like a good thing, but everything comes with a price.
"Déjà View" is the eighth volume in the collected short stories of Jerry Oltion. Jerry has had his stories published in most of the major science fiction venues and has had several successful novels, including four highly acclaimed Star Trek books. He has become the most published author in the history of Analog magazine. His stories have won the Nebula award, the Endeavor award, the Seiun award, and have been nominated multiple times for the Hugo award. His stories are often humorous, with likeable characters using intelligence and competence (as opposed to force and violence) to solve their problems. His style harks back to the golden age of science fiction, yet with a modern sensibility and relevance. Even his earliest works hold up well today — and on into the future.
