Two years ago I started writing a series of short stories. Today I finished the last one.
One definition of science fiction is: Take the world roughly as we know it, add one magic thing and see what happens.
Aliens land - how do governments react? A new drug is developed with doubles lifespan - how do people cope? 99% of the population becomes blind overnight - how does it change the triffid situation?
My question was: You can travel to the past for one hour to correct a mistake - which mistake do you chose? That, and what are the effects on society of this power?
Nine stories, three overlapping sets of three, overall title: "T". They're deliberately big on discussion and short on action, like the stories of Issac Asimov. I've also tried to be more emotional, more humanistic - these are stories about people, not technology.
They're listed here in roughly "chronological" order, but
seeing as they're about time travel, you can put them in any order you
like. Hope you feel like giving them a try.
