Alan Wall. Superluminosity. (Asimovs August 2010).

A first Asimovs story for Wall, featuring love and betrayal, time travel and handbags. In a near future where society is reaping what we are currently sowing, Jack has cheated on the wife, but whilst he is smart enough to have created a time machine, he isn’t smart enough to realise that going back in time when you are reliant on your recently wronged wife to call you back from the past is -not- a good idea.

The story has some interesting ideas, especially the time traveller leaving behind an increasing ethereal version of himself, moored to the time machine, but suffers slightly from the reader not making an emotional attachment to either the husband or the wife.
