Anchors No More

by David Edward Wagner

Doctors Holly Marshal and Gary Neff have discovered the secrets of time travel, but now that they have made the first practical test of their theory, they find themselves in an entirely different race against time as the military and its corporate investors want what they have.  Start at the beginning

Anchors No More: #46 –Finale–: The Problem With Indecisions

Setting his pack down, Gary closed the door behind him. It was stuffy inside the small rounded chamber, he adjusted the wetsuit around his crotch while Holly entered the code and fine-tuned the mixture. Finishing the preparations, she turned to him, saw the questions in his eyes. She gave a slight smile, “It’s too late […]

Anchors No More # 45: A Little Warmer

The long months melted together, only mist in her mind as Holly made it through each day. She painted a little, on the days she was allowed into the activity room, often creating lazy abstracts in bright colors, some unconscious rejection of her reality so concrete and drab. It was hard for her. For months […]

Anchors No More # 44: As the Smoke Clears

Holly looked into Gary’s eyes as the pandemonium grew around them. “Ten,” she simply said, “Count to ten.” A bullet tore the air between them and hit the machine. Gary flinched, looked into her eyes one last time, turned and entered the chamber. The door shut behind him and Holly knew he was gone. She […]

Anchors No More #43: The Basic Ontological Paradox

Uncertainty overwhelmed Gary as the door to the Marshall Temporal Device shut behind him. He had never felt this before. Complete cognitive dissonance, only able to act on inertia, no confidence in his current capacity for reason or rationality. There was one thing. One solitary fact that he held onto in the midst of his […]

Anchors No More # 42: A Measure of Satisfaction

From the moment he saw Daniel take a bullet in the gut, Restrepo knew they would not be getting out of the ARCC alive. To be fair, he had assumed as much from the very beginning, from the moment he cut a hole in the perimeter fence and crawled through it he had the feeling […]

Anchors No More # 41: Just Like This

Through the blurry haze of the smoke filled basement, Holly saw Daniel drop to his knees. She screamed and stepped towards him but behind her Gary shouted, “Holly.” She stopped, looking back to see him standing in front of the temporal device, the door open, his face twisted in exasperated fear. She could see nothing […]

Anchors No More # 40: A Real Pleasure

Upstairs, Restrepo winced as bullets struck the wall around him. He took another step down, firing his rifle at a multitude of moving targets. “Shit,” he yelled, “we need help.” Mike stepped forward and shot at whatever he could see. Restrepo turned to Steven, “Tell Daniel we’re coming down and to get ready. We can’t […]

Anchors No More # 39: Darwin was One Smart Bastard

Steven, Mike, and Restrepo were near the top of the stairs but they had been pushed back a step or two. Inside the stairwell, the angle of the wall helped to create a slight funnel, giving the three men enough cover to temporarily stave off the attacking horde of ARLIS men. They were holding their […]

Anchors No More # 38 : Famous Last Words

From the top of the stairs, Restrepo yelled, “Come on, guys, they’re getting noisier up here,” and Holly thought it was a indistinctive claim considering the banging, shooting, and shouting had not ceased for a moment since they began. From her work, she spared a glance for Daniel sitting beside her on the floor wrestling […]

Anchors No More # 37 : Almost There

The back of his skull struck the concrete floor, bursting stars and numbness slammed his senses for a moment before the pain swelled. Gary remembered toppling over, slipping on a stair as a bullet whizzed by and hit the wall above his head. He heard gunfire and screaming, Holly shouting as he fell. She wanted […]
