Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Jack Campbell takes listeners on an incredible journey through time in this collection of seven stories.

The centerpiece of Borrowed Time is "Betty Knox and Dictionary Jones in the Mystery of the Missing Teenage Anachronisms". When you've traveled through time and are stuck in the body of your 15-year-old self, it isn't the best time to have some other time travelers looking to kill you. Especially when the person who's supposed to be keeping an eye out for the bad guys is stuck in his own 15-year-old body.

In four interlinked short stories, temporal interventionists Tom and Pam meet cute, then work together to solve some of history's greatest mysteries. And in "Joan", Kate is a time-traveling researcher who's gotten a little too close to Joan of Arc both in time and emotionally. With no distance, scientific or otherwise, what will happen when she has a chance to rescue Joan from being burnt at the stake?

Our journey through time concludes with "Crow's Feat", where a skeptical writer goes back to Elizabethan England to discover the true author of Shakespeare's plays.

    "What a disappointment!"

    I've struggled with the spin off Syndicate Worlds series Lost Stars but generally not actively disliked it. just about every other series I have enjoyed enough to always look for new books out. Jack! How could you publish this meandering, uninteresting jumble of "stories"? This collection should have been left for your estate to publish after you decided it wasn't good enough for your fans.

    Collections of stories based on a popular series often don't work and take my word for it that this is a spectacular exhibit of that problem. Even the Honor Harrington and 1632 collections, some of the best IMO, don't always thrill me but this book was painful.

    Get a grip on your next work, please. this one's going back after trying one last time to find anything redeeming in it.
