Nick Wisseman lives in Bear Lake, Michigan with his wife, daughter and animal menagerie of a dog, 5 cats, and 2 horses. Besides his family, Nick loves writing speculative fiction. His short stories have graced the pages of such magazines as Allegory, Bewildering Stories, and The Cynic On-Line.
Jim had a wayward eye, and when wife Rachel went off on a business trip for the weekend, he picks up a hooker. However, Claudia isn’t a normal girl of the streets. When a man makes love to her, he is transported back in time to a previous romance.
Writer Nick Wisseman appropriately titles this short story, Time Trick. As readers get glimpses of Jim’s previous lives they will wonder why this guy can be such a jerk. Jim soon realizes his actions in the past influence outcomes in present time causing drastic consequences. Time Trick is a crazy rollercoaster ride that has a few confusing scenes, but holds together nicely in this fun read for time travel fans.
No significant issues.
