From Space and Time #132: “The Slowest Bullet Ever Shot”

Ever notice how time goes by too fast for the good stuff but seems to drag through the rough patches? In “The Slowest Bullet Ever Shot” by Max Shepard, everything slows down for the protagonist at exactly the right moments, almost making him invincible. Except for that one time…

…but I don’t want to share any spoilers. This story is one of my favorites. Well written and engaging, the dialogue is honest and believable. A page turner, I sped through the story to the satisfying end, and then re-read it a second time.

Great job to Max Shepard for an excellent tale and to Alfred Klosterman for the fantastic illustrations. You can read “The Slowest Bullet Ever Shot” by Max Shepard in issue #132 of Space and Time, available here. The next issue is due out on March 20.
