Taylor is simply brilliant. Fantastic short.

Taylor writing & Porter performing. This pair is one of the best. And delivering a truly enjoyable and satisfying thinker of a story in a 30 minute vignette.

A Bite-Sized Time Travel Story

What more can you ask for, it’s a 30 minute book about the paradoxes of time travel. Sure, it’s confusing at times, but… I’m pretty sure that time paradoxes would be as well. The story was fast and interesting and I wanted to know what was going to happen almost from the first 10 seconds.

Throw in narration by the great Ray Porter and you have an easy to dive into Audible Original that is shorter than most podcasts. A bite-sized time travel story that will have you worried about scientists discovering exactly what they discovered.

Excellent Mind-bending Ride

Doesn’t take long to become invested in the characters and the situation in this short mind-bender. Dennis and Ray make an excellent team.

Solid short story

Taylor and Porter is a match made in Heaven. It's an excellent short story with a brilliant performance. The scene changes are a bit quick though, so you got to stay focused to pick up the time travel changes.

I was so disappointed to find this was so short. Honestly I can't see how audible charge a full credit for this.

Short, but sweet! Om nom nom...

I'm not a fan of short stories on Audible, they're overpriced. However, I am a fan of Dennis E. Taylor, and will devour anything he writes!
This story was so cool! Imaginative, succinct, and dare I say it, an itsy bit of a twist near the end? I love a bit of time travel.
Get a listen to it if you can :-)

Fantastic little short story about time travel and paradoxes. Wouldn't mind if this were a full length novel.

Great narration too!

Nice bonus! Enjoyable AND tidy

Worth the short listen and a perk of a subscription… it is a tale of science fiction if I ever saw one. Short and sweet

Full price for 30 minute short story!

Should have check the play length before buying. 30min short story with simple concept. Not worth it.
