Rocket Talk: A Podcast

Rocket Talk Episode 30: “Six Months, Three Days” by Charlie Jane Anders

In this episode of Rocket Talk, we take a break to present an audio edition of “Six Months, Three Days,” an original story by Charlie Jane Anders—and winner of the 2012 Hugo Award for Best Novelette—as read by Emmet Asher-Perrin.

Doug and Judy have both had a secret power all their life. Judy can see every possible future, branching out from each moment like infinite trees. Doug can also see the future, but for him, it’s a single, locked-in, inexorable sequence of foreordained events. They can’t both be right, but over and over again, they are.  Obviously these are the last two people in the world who should date. So, naturally, they do.

The short story can be read online for free here.
