Dr. Warner misjudged destiny’s resourcefulness. Badly. In a market where the lab once stood, police shackled and dragged him from the gathering crowd. He couldn’t place the Asian dialect over blood pounding his eardrum.

“Slavery? Genocide?” he’d obsessed. “That’s privilege’s ground zero.”

His wife scoffed. “Playing field needs more than leveling to change things, hon.”

So he designed a FastWinder, to rewind through history, and black hole bullets, to blast every European settlement from reality. But West to East, China instead had colonized the America he fast forwarded home to, slaughtering the indigenous population, barring foreigners, and enslaving illegal immigrants.
