"This is one of my favourite short stories by any author, both for the unique concept of time as a true river with tributaries and currents, and for its tight execution. It made me stop and consider the linearity of time in an entirely new way."

The River of Time brings together twelve of David Brin's finest stories, including "The Crystal Spheres"(WINNER: Hugo Award Best SF Short Story 1985), and four new stories published here for the first time. Here are powerful tales of heroism and humanity, playful excursions into realms of fancy, and profound meditations on time, memory, and our place in the universe.
"The Crystal Spheres" offers a fantastic explanation for the Great Silence. Instead of being latecomers, might humanity have come upon the scene too early?
"The Loom of Thessaly" merges classical mythology with impudent modern spirit in a science-fiction classic that speculates on the nature of reality.
"Thor Meets Captain America" offers an alternate history exploring a chilling scenario behind the Holocaust. In this parallel world, the Nazis narrowly avoid defeat in World War II when they are championed by the gods of the Norse Pantheon.
The opening paragraphs of the short story "The River of Time," which gave its name to my first anthology, is up for your pleasure at the UNFIT Magazine site, helping get the new venture launched.
