Book Review

Time travel, were it real, would offer some truly strange possibilities for relationships, and one of them is explored in this story. Two men, both of them aliens from the sound of it, meet while on the job, only to fall for each other and end up stuck with two “recreational trips” per year when they can meet. Of course, these two events per year are not enough, and this is the story of how the situation changes.

Ish is a digger, I’d call him an archeologist, and since he has four arms to work with, he is good at his job. In fact he is pretty much obsessed with it, and there is only one thing that can pry him away from his work, and that is a date with his boyfriend, time cop Kabal. Kabal is a shape shifter and he has a plan – the disclosure of which is his ten-year anniversary gift to Ish. But the reveal doesn’t go as planned and Ish thinks their relationship, such as it is, has ended…
If you like time travel with all its many pitfalls, if you think two men from different worlds and born centuries apart deserve a chance at happiness, and if you’re looking for a fun read about the intricacies of dating despite the rules of separation due to time travel regulations, then you will probably enjoy this cute short story.
