Wikihistory – a Time Travel Short Story

I found this short story, Wikihistory, via Boing Boing this morning, and had to share it with you because it’s great and I like sharing great things. Cory Doctorow describes the story as “a delightful science fiction short story by Desmond Warzel in the form of a series of messages posted to a time-travellers’ forum”. That about sums it up.

This made me giggle:

Okay, apparently AsianAvenger was descended from Hong Xiuquan. Any volunteers to go back and stop him from negating his own existence?

Anyhow, I love time-travel stories. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did.
