Time. We feel it march by, seeming to gain momentum with each passing
year. Some physicists argue that it might not actually exist. We have
only our recollections to depend on, and sometimes those can fool us,
becoming fogged, like overexposed film.
"The Time It Happened" from Third Flatiron Anthologies contains 15
short science fiction adventures and flash humor pieces that explore
world-altering events, both real and imagined, ranging from alien
invasion and space wars to fantastically unpredictable science
experiments. Seemingly minor crises, such as missing your morning cup
of coffee, or a network glitch, can ruin your whole day, but what
about forever? Historical events, like Lincoln's death, the Apollo 11
mission, or Sputnik, may not have happened quite like we remember. Yet
surely the most important memories, like love, are permanently etched
on the walls of time.
