This is how Shaina Brewer arrives at what she thinks is her destination, and is one of the stories in Traveler’s HOT L. The remaining seven stories are accounts of time travel by means of one of Earth’s two Harmonic Overlapping Time Locations. The stories reveal a unique use of the HOT L by a former mental patient, a pair of counterfeiters, a detective, and four other individuals. As the travelers move through time, they try to repair the damage to the time fabric, attempting to use time as the ultimate hiding place, choosing the “other fork in the road,” and righting wrongs.
What happens to ex Army sniper, Roselyn Reynolds, while she plays the video game “Battle for a Far Planet” will leave you in doubt about the wisdom of immersing yourself in an electronic fantasy world. She is just one of eight characters who journey across time in adventures that will forever change them.
