Présentation de l'éditeur

In Jack Campbell’s New York Times bestselling Lost Fleet series, Campbell takes his readers through a grand adventure in space. In BORROWED TIME, seven stories take readers on an equally grand journey through time. A new author’s note accompanies each story.

The centerpiece of BORROWED TIME is “Betty Knox and Dictionary Jones in the Mystery of the Missing Teenage Anachronisms.” When you’ve traveled through time and are stuck in the body of your 15-year-old self, it isn’t the best time to have some other time travelers looking to kill you. Especially when the person who’s supposed to be keeping an eye out for the bad guys is stuck in his own 15-year-old body. And it’s 1964: when you’re both 15 and your parents don’t want you spending time alone, how are you going to save your lives? SFRevu called this story “one of the most enjoyable reads I’ve had in a long time.”

In four interlinked short stories, Temporal Interventionists Tom and Pam meet cute, then work together to solve some of history’s greatest mysteries. Discover the real origin of the Spanish Flu. Learn why a massive and mysterious explosion in 1908 happened to occur in the world’s least-inhabited region. Consider the possibility that the development of ironclad warships by both the South and the North at the exact same time during the American Civil War might have been more than coincidence. And why don’t we know exactly who fired the Shot Heard Round the World, the lone gunshot that started the American Revolution?

In “Joan,” Kate is a time-traveling researcher who’s gotten a little too close to Joan of Arc both in time and emotionally. With no distance, scientific or otherwise, what will happen when she has a chance to rescue Joan from being burnt at the stake?

Our journey through time concludes with “Crow’s Feat,” when a skeptical writer goes back to Elizabethan England to discover the true author of Shakespeare’s plays.

BORROWED TIME is the second in a series of short story collections from Jack Campbell.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good, but too short for the cost 14 juin 2013
Par John-Paul Witt - Publié sur

This is a good collection of Campbell's short stories around the intriguing theme of "Temporal Interventions" and the idea that the events of history are constantly being altered by activists from the future. The pace is brisk and stories well-written, avoiding technical jargon that can make science fiction obtuse. The work suffers because the stories are resolved abruptly - just when the reader is beginning to make connections and play detective, Campbell resolves the action and it's on to the next story.

Further, for a Kindle work it was over priced - perhaps two dollars more than it should cost at the time I purchased it. I would have no complaints if this work was three dollars or less. I hope that Campbell develops these themes and characters into a longer work.

Another great short story collection by Jack Campbell, AKA John Hemry. Thoroughly recommended. It is easy to get hooked on his writings.

I enjoyed the stories that the author wrote. It is a great concept, but I think I would have found them more enjoyable if they had been a novel rather than a series of short stories that were loosely related.

Meh, read it awhile ago and I can't even remember any of the stories. Maybe there was that one, nothing...

This series of stories about time travel, and the problems it might cause, are long enough to be interesting and to allow you to orient yourself to the parameters of the science, but so long that they have time to drag or bore. Overall, exciting and readable while still staying in reasonable/ understandable universe. I really liked the Shakespeare story and the things it had to say about really looking at the information available without allowing your own prejudices to obscure the facts.
