Time travel stories are as old as science fiction, wandering backwards to change the past or forward like Buck Rogers trapped in that abandoned mine shaft.
Perhaps you will step through a mirror darkly.
How will the world change?
How will you?

About the Authors
Chuck Anderson is a painter, publisher, and writer. He lives in Colorado, and he has a weakness for muscle cars. Chuck is retired from a job of 22 years and like the name Voldemort, "You-Know-Who" or "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named," he never wants to speak of his past career out-loud ever again. Chuck can be found at madcow.press.
M.L. Buchman started the first of over 50 novels and even more short stories while flying from South Korea to ride his bicycle across the Australian Outback. All part of a solo around-the-world trip (a mid-life crisis on wheels) that ultimately launched his writing career.
In addition to science fiction, he also writes thrillers, fantasy, and military romantic suspense books. His titles have been named Barnes & Noble and NPR "Top 5 of the Year" and 3-time Booklist "Top 10 of the Year." In among his career as a corporate project manager he has: rebuilt and single-handed a fifty-foot sailboat, both flown and jumped out of airplanes, and designed and built two houses.
He is now making his living as a full-time writer on the Oregon Coast assisted by his beloved wife. He remains constantly amazed at what can be done with a degree in Geophysics. You may keep up with his writing and receive exclusive content by subscribing to his newsletter at www.mlbuchman.com.

Duncan Ellis is a novelist and software engineer living in Portland, Oregon. He grew up in Yorkshire where he learned to drink tea and complain about cricket, and lived in several cities in England before moving to the US in 2001.
He has written many novel drafts under the auspices of National Novel Writing Month, but his first published book was "Livia and the Corpuscles", an adventure of Steampunk Rome.
Duncan started writing after he began his career as a software developer in Nottingham, making serial fiction for his co-workers. He took a break from narrative fiction after moving to Surrey, but continued to invent fictional elements in roleplaying and collaborative games. He just couldn't stop making things up.
He is currently working on "A Turquoise Song", a science fiction mystery set in a near-future Portland featuring robots, ninjas, and synaesthesia.
Joel Ewy is centrally located for your convenience, has a wife and two kids, and took the Liberal Arts concept way more seriously than it was probably ever intended to be. He's a digital philosopher, and also fixes computers, sometimes for pay.
He's just irresponsible enough to start spending a little less time doing that and more time writing, and making weird, anachronistic computer-based art pieces. Joel has an extensive collection of classic computers from the late '70s to the early '90s and beyond, but he's still looking for that free Atari ST to fall out of the sky. Use your best faux German accent, or pretend you're Dr. Strangelove when you say his last name, and you might get it right. (Hint: Ay-Vee)
You can also find him in the Alternative Truths Anthology.
Bruno Lombardi's shorts stories have been published in a wide assortment of anthologies and magazines, including Alternative Truths, With Iron And Fire, More Alternative Truths, Weirdbook and Occult Detective Quarterly.
"Snake Oil," originally published by Daverana Enterprises, is Bruno's first novel. A second edition of "Snake Oil," by Martinus Publishing, is now available.
Bruno Lombardi was born in Montreal in 1968 and has had a rather distressing tendency to be a weirdness magnet for much of his adult life. If your friend's cousin's brother-in-law tells you a story and swears it's true and that it 'happened to someone he knows', it was probably Bruno.
He currently lives in Ottawa and works as a civil servant for the Canadian government. His hobbies include attempting to dissuade the cults that form around him, managing the betting pool on the next Weird Thing, and being a slave to his cat, Mynx. Rumours that he secretly runs the Canadian government from his nuclear bunker with an android called 'Justin Trudeau' as a front have never been substantiated and are merely rumours. Honestly.
He has also met lots of people off the internet and has yet to be murdered by any of them; his cat, on the other hand, has other ideas.
Look for Bruno on Facebook.
Michael Warren Lucas
Michael Warren Lucas spent too much of his youth with Michael Moorcock books, the primordial Star Trek, and John Carpenter films. He directly credits the resulting psychic damage for his career as a full time writer. His Immortal Clay series takes classic pod people paranoia and asks, “but what if we lost?” The Montague Portal stories explore universes with alien physics. If you’re a particular kind of nerd check out his git commit murder series, set at Internet technology conferences. His nonfiction technology books are widely considered the standard references in their fields.

M. E. Owen
M.E. Owen writes science fiction, fantasy and crime, often in the same story.
She lives on the wet side of Washington state, and when not writing, plays with honking big transportation geodatabases, occasionally kayaks and more occasionally throws knives (not all at once, but that would be cool).
Her short work has also appeared in Abyss & Apex, Fireside Fiction, Fiction River, Flash Fiction Online, and elsewhere. Her debut novel, Survival Instincts, a science fiction noir, is scheduled for publication in 2018. You can keep up with her at www.MEOwen.com.
