Old Dead Futures

In “Old Dead Futures,” a young boy’s ability to change the future makes him valuable to the government. But that same ability keeps him trapped in a wheelchair and at the mercy of those who would use him. When our present is fixed, how can we see a different future?

This short story was acquired and edited for Tor.com by editor Melissa Frain and was originally published on the site on July 17, 2013. For more from Tina Connolly, check out Copperhead, her new sequel to Ironskin, available October 15.
