Overview

Strangeways returns with two mind-bending tales of time travel! In "Ten to the Sixteenth to One" an odd visitor from the future challenges a young boy to save the world, against the ominous backdrop of the Cuban Missile Crisis. This novelette was awarded the World Science Fiction Society's Hugo Award in 2000. And in "Unique Visitors" an entrepreneur of the digital age discovers that the future is stranger than he, or anyone else, could imagine. A bonus essay examines whether time travel is fantasy -- or science fiction. All this and more in the second issue of Strangeways, a new ezine from Nebula-award-winning writer Kelly.

Meet the Author

James Patrick Kelly has won the Hugo, Nebula and Locus awards and his stories have been translated into nineteen languages. Many of the stories in Strangeways, his new digital magazine, have been chosen for selection in Year's Best Science Fiction anthologies. Publisher's Weekly calls Kelly "A meticulous craftsman in the demanding short-story form ... delivers tight, deceptively simple tales with complex, often delayed reverberations." Locus Magazine writes, "The overall effect of these tales is that while Kelly is something of a dark romantic with a fondness for getting his characters into tragic circumstances of isolation and alienation, he's also someone in love with the sheer narrative possibilities of SF, and with its old-fashioned capacity for wonder."
