Comments for Inside Time

FSFInside Time: 05/26/10

I associate the stories I read with where I read them especially when the two link up thematically. For instance, I read "Inside Time" on a BART train and it fit perfectly with the small vehicles that deliver people to the station inside the white hole.

The station is a prison and a way station. Mae, the permanent resident is a political prisoner, from the far future of her latest visitor, Herel Jablov. Most of the short story is Mae explaining the future to Jablov and how his invention made it possible.

"Inside Time" is written in the style of a Twilight Zone or Outer Limits. It's one of psychological drama and turn-arounds. The twist at the end is pretty obvious to anyone who is familiar with this type of story, but it is still satisfying.
