Chapman impressed with his ‘Architect of Heaven’ online at Clarkesworld earlier this year (Best SF Review).
And he does it again in this story, that has the same ‘feel’ to it. Kyle Preston gets a warning from the future, and he heeds it, but not as much as he should do, with horrendous implications (Chapman pulls no punches!). Preston is fully-rounded character, and we follow him over the years, many years, and further warnings from the future, which leaves him with a seemingly impossible situation, as the only action he appears to have to save what may happen, is to take an action of appalling consequence in his current life.
Clearly an author to look out for.
