There’s a derelict factory grounds very close to me, this wall has been erected since the car park was closed to stop cars entering. I love the engraved arrow, rather than the usual, obvious plastic signage. I’m always looking for direction, this photo reminds me that every way is a way.

Science Fiction time travel Adolf Hitler

If you could go back in time to kill Adolf Hitler before his atrocities, would you do it? Would you still do it if you had to kill William Shakespeare to get to Hitler? Those are big, philosophical questions, perhaps too big for a short tale to tackle, but everyone can relate to the weirdness of substitute teachers, although maybe not like the one in this story.
