While browsing my daily webcomics for Tuesdays, I came upon an accompanying blog post that mentioned what was said to be a very interesting time paradox sci-fi story. Intrigued, I looked it up and read it online, as it was hosted for free in its entirety by UCSD (University of California, San Diego). It described a very interesting infinitely reoccurring time loop, which I found fascinating. However, it also contained a person being their own mother, father, child, and time traveler. It is well written, and while the story does get pretty weird, it’s still very interesting in its execution of an infinite time loop paradox that resolves all anomalies.
Oh yeah, it was written in the 50s, and nominated for a short fiction award in the 80s. For the wiki entry, click here, and for the story itself, click here.
We’ll be discussing it briefly (or not so briefly) on this Friday’s MehCast, so be sure to tune in.
