One of my all-time favorite stories is now live!
“Fate and Other Variables” is a story of a hacker who teams up with a kabbalist to break into the metaphysical Book of Life and alter their futures. It’s a cyberpunk and ubran fantasy mashup, and you can read it for free at Galaxy’s Edge magazine by following this link — but only for the next three months. After that it will remain behind a paywall. (You can and should, of course, subscribe to get full access to this and other stories).
And here’s the illustration for “Fate” by Barry Munden, which will appear in Explaining Cthulhu to Grandma and Other Stories.
Interesting solution. Brave guy … excellent story. 🙂
Reminds me of the movie “Pi”. Very cool!
Ha, I haven’t thought of the comparison, but now that you mention it, I do see it 🙂
Just read your DSF story … when will these guys get that time travel NEVER turns out well!
But if it turned out well, how would we write interesting stories about it? 🙂
Too true. I like the ‘can only go forward’ thing. That gets around not being able to change the past quite neatly. 🙂
That, and it eliminates the plot problem of the character simply getting back into his Tardis and flying back 5 years 🙂
I just spent all day at work reading your short stories! New fan!
Thank you, glad you’re enjoying them!
