A shortcut in time
ISBN: 9781429943055. OCLC Number: 865171656

Tor,. .

Charles Dickinson's novels and short stories have won widespread acclaim for their deft characterization, humanity, and humor. Newsday described him as a writer thoroughly in command of his art, while the Chicago Tribune wrote he can surprise us at almost every turn. Now Dickinson slips beyond the bounds of mundane realism to create a poignant fantasy that bears comparison to the work of Jack Finney and Jonathan Carroll. Euclid, Illinois, is a town of many shortcuts, between houses, through orchards, and across fields. Josh Winkler, a local artist and longtime resident, knows these irregular pathways well, but is thoroughly taken aback when a hasty dash down a familiar walk deposits him fifteen minutes in the past--literally. At first, Josh is more intrigued than alarmed by this accidental time travel. Then a lost young woman appears, claiming to be from 1908 ... As his life, his family, his town, and even history itself begin to unravel, Josh gradually realizes that his only salvation may lie in A Shortcut in Time. Charles Dickinson has written a moving and unforgettable book about the way the past can affect the present as well as, sometimes, the other way around. At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

On Halloween morning, Chicago news editor Danny Fain witnesses what may, or may not, be a crime.
