More About the Author

Nick Wisseman lives in Bear Lake, Michigan with his wife, daughter, fifty cats, twenty horses, and ten dogs. (Okay, so there are actually ten times less pets than that, but most days it feels like more.) He's not quite sure why he loves writing twisted fiction, but there's no stopping the weirdness once he's in front of a computer. Eventually he hopes to merge this stubborn surrealism with his academic training and produce something in the historical fantasy line. But for now, he's content with the purely speculative fiction he's published in magazines like Allegory, Battered Suitcase, Bewildering Stories, The Cynic Online Magazine, and Mysterical-E.

You may want to sit down for this one. IT takes you on a crazy journey.
It is about a man named Blake. He is a Shifter, and this story takes you through how he figured out what he is and what it means to be a Shifter.
I felt as if I was on the journey with him.
He was being slung into different situations and he had no way of stopping it.
I like the way it was written. It was very effective in telling this story.
I was confused for a while as to where this story was leading, but it came together at the end, and it was very interesting.
5/5 stars. I really enjoyed this one. The way it takes you along on the journey made it even better.

Revisions starts out in the same way as many of this author's stories, chaotic, disorienting, but definitely engaging. The way the story is told, the reader is as disoriented and unsure about what exactly is happening as the main character. Conversations with a mysterious figure alternate with "jumps" to places and events in history,. With each event little by little the story is revealed. By the end the reader is presented with a startling little twist.

The plot of the story is excellent and incredibly well-crafted. The pacing keeps the story suspenseful and entertaining. similar to many of this author's short stories, the story ending is abrupt. The story cuts off almost as soon as the final revelation is revealed, leaving the reader hungry for more. It's an excellent story for people that like science fiction, and history and would make an interesting premise for a book. Revisions is a brilliant short story that will be memorable for many readers.

"The fact that you're reading this means you're a) literate, ... and b) dead."

I read this as part of Underhill's "Outcasts" collection, and this was the only one of the lot that made me chuckle. Really intriguing ideas, presented with a sort of morbid, quirky touch of humor. Probably the most *fun* read of the collection. Definitely worth it as a stand alone. Clever and well-written.

A man travels through time, he knows not how or why.

Some of the stylistic tricks will be familiar to readers of Wisseman's story 'Smile'. Here the alternating viewpoints are between a bold-type font denoting a book, and either italics representing our time-traveller or standard text of the story. I could've preferred just one of the two styles to keep more focus. Primarily because the book sections change tone and voice repeatedly. The written book interjections work well in the main body where they read like textbook snippets - but when counter faced with the time traveller's inner thoughts they read like an email. It's a long enough work to allow for the diversity, however, one wasn't as well executed.

Similarly spare compared to his other works, Wisseman's tone is light and haunting. It would truly suck to be stranded in time. Just ask 'The Time Traveller's Wife'!

The main character could use a trifle more revision. During their first time travel they wonder who they are (and plan to check their shoe size as a means of ascertaining this fact). Unfortunately, in the next scene he is given a name [Blake] but he never completes his self reflection...as he's immediately more concerned with whom the other character is, and so it goes. Poor Blake never really gets any answers, and we the reader don't either. Still, it would read a little better if Blake weren't so scatterbrained as to immediately move to the next idea--he's a person, albeit fictional. Not the plaything of an author.

And yet, we can empathize with his plight. Stranded, Fated, and alone in the webs of time. I recommend this work as an interesting short story on the nature of time travellers. An odd group of folks to be sure! For a longer, but equally bleak piece, see Sean Ferrell's 'Man in the Empty Suit'.
