Rereading through “Grandfather Paradox,” I think the timeline needs a bit of a twist. I think it’s a bit too linear for this particular tale. And I still think it’s an Analog story, although that’s really Dr. Schmidt’s call and not mine, and the only test that matters.
It’s also in much better shape than “Book of Shadows” (which is the working title of the nightmare story). So “Grandfather Paradox” definitely needs to be worked on first.
You know, nothing really improves a misbehaving story like ripening over time.
