SF WILLIS

Best Novel – 2010. After three historians from 2060 slipped back into the war-torn world of 1940 England to observe the behavior of the period, small discrepancies in the historical record seem to indicate that one or all of them have somehow affected the past, changing the outcome of the war. The belief that the past can be observed but never altered has always been a core belief of time-travel theory – but suddenly it seemed that the theory is horrible, tragically wrong.
