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 #26: Stumbling Towards the Bump in the Road

Holly wasn’t sure how much more she could take. The pressure was building, welling in her chest, constricting the muscles of her shoulders and neck as she walked with Gary beside her, both of them close behind Restrepo and Kate moving down the long, busy corridor as casually as possible. Ahead, she could see Daniel, […]

Anchors No More # 25 : And Then Came the Moment of Truth

Restrepo kept his rifle raised and pointed at Queen’s chest. This was it, both men knew it: the moment of truth. Scanning the dim room, Restrepo saw nothing noteworthy and turned his attention back to Queen again. They silently watched one another a moment before Queen raised his hands and stepped forward, “It’s just me, […]

Anchors No More #24: Twenty Meters and a Dream

They parked two miles away, creeping through the thin forest, moving quickly and quietly towards the ARLIS compound.  Holly made sure she stayed close to Steven, moving when he did, crouching down and holding still when he prompted her to do so. Steven had been charged with escorting Holly and Gary and he kept himself […]

Anchors No More #23: Of Loose Lips And Sinking Ships

Why did you do it, Lawrence Queen thought, wishing he had not looked at the clock on his phone, not right then. Shit. He looked around Vanderhoff’s office, waiting for the Lieutenant to get off of his own phone and return to interrogating him about his connections to Sebastian Restrepo and any foul play their […]

Anchors No More #22: When Now Met Never

Holly removed her jacket and pulled on a thick green sweater. Gary was still taking off his shoes, leaning against the wall by the door. Feeling his eyes upon her as she combed her hair briskly with her fingers, Holly asked, “What?” and he just shook his head and looked away. He threw his shoes […]

Anchors No More #21: I’ve Gathered You Here Today

The day of the raid on the ARLIS compound they had a large breakfast, eating quietly for the most part, only random jokes and stoic requests to pass salt or salsa breaking the still atmosphere. When they finished their meal, Daniel stood from his seat and gave the group a long loving look, saying simply, […]

Anchors No More #20: The Hurricane’s Blinking Eye

The night was cool and dark, barely a star in the sky. If not for the nagging feeling that she would probably be dead in a few days, Holly would have wished for a nice glass of wine and some mellow music, maybe The Drifters or Leonard Cohen, something classic and sweet. Siting with Daniel […]

Anchors No More #19: All In On The Wildcard

James wasn’t sure of the idea and he gave Daniel an incredulous glance to make sure Daniel understood that fact. Daniel measured his partner a moment before asking, “What? Just say it.” James was as uncertain about voicing his opinion and adding to their exhausted anxiety as he was about Restrepo’s actual suggestion. He stood […]

Anchors No More #18: A Long Blank Look

Lawrence Queen wished he had not been a part of that particular conversation. He did his best to appear innocuous and unaffected by the dialog he had just found himself involved in, but he knew by the long steely glare he received from Vanderhoff that he was failing in his attempt. Even after walking away, […]

Anchors No More #17: The Drawing Board Beckons

Sebastian Restrepo sat glaring at the map, as did Daniel, James, and Steven Jenkins, the only scientist in the fugitive group with actual military training. Steven had come up through the ranks of the army science corps and had made it through three months of mandatory boot camp, honing a workable proficiency in weaponry and […]
