Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Some of it’s very funny. “I’ve always thought the one where light can barely get through the ash in the air is the darkest timeline because I like being literal about these things.”

Con: It’s not a story. Even at just 1637 words, it goes on a bit too long.

  1. Yup, funny, but it's just a list of time travel story pitches.

  2. I agree with the rating.

    It is short and it is worth reading, but it is not really a story. Told from the point of view of time travelers who have tried (operative word = tried) to change the timeline.
