Fiction. Short Story. In a desolate near future, an unemployed trucker gets paid to chauffeur a simulacrum of Benjamin Franklin on a speaking tour across America. A lonely realtor takes in a long-lost uncle who claims to have returned from the future and blogs accordingly. A self-help writer finds inspiration in his dogged but troubled young milkman. The finest actor of his generation stoops to coaching actors on the set of a sci-fi cheapie. And the translator aboard a Portuguese carrack must decide whether to follow his deranged captain, Ferdinand Magellan, or end his reign of terror by killing him. The stories in FATHERS OF CAMBODIAN TIME-TRAVEL SCIENCE present a strange future and harrowing past in a delightful, alchemical mixture of realism and complete bullshit.
