Universal Genius by erinlale

indie ebook cover

A collection of reprints of short stories previously published in print magazines, and never before available in electronic format.

About half are science fiction, and the other half are fantasy, alternate history, and magical realism.

The first story, The Timelessness Machine, is a classic of hard sf from the first issue of Sterling Web.

The alternate history piece, Obamaphone, is the source of the urban legend about an "Obamaphone" which you can read about on snopes (the actual what-if of the story, what-if "freedom of speech" were interpreted to mean free without paying the phone company, and the government started supplying free cell phones to people who met certain requirements, has actually come true in 19 states, although it had nothing to do with Obama.) Usually it's cool when a prediction made in an sf story comes true, but... well, if you read the story, you'll understand.

This collection also includes one previously unpublished story, Tsim, which is the origin story of the Tsim Knights, an alien military group that features in the Time Yarns series Punch.
