Elizabeth Bear can always be depended upon to write a fine tale, but you never know know what her back drop is going to be. This time, she has concocted a delicious tale from three relatively stale staples of SF. Any two of them would have been a challenge to the author, but all three? Ms. Bear is not only up to the task of keeping all three elements in play, but gives it a dash of her literary genius to pull off another great read.

Short fiction especially science fiction is often about the concept and not the characters. This is an interesting mash up of time travel and alternative history and appears as a set up for the author to play with some fabulous figures from the past. She has a ball and the story is enjoyable. It was good enough that I was interested in seeing it being fleshed out into something more.

Interesting concept - I would like to see it expanded, fleshed out more. Maybe bring in another historical character or 2 (Wyatt Earp?) with some more explanation about the aliens, possibly a stronger resolution.
