“Chronoclasm,” John Wyndham, 1953 – A man given knowledge of the future also faces the prospect that he is without free will.
Comments: A brisk time travel/paradox adventure that takes a few good shots at mores, fashion, and non-“probative” assumptions. Has been critiqued by fans and scholars for its success or failure in resolving the paradox. See Genrikh Al’tov’s “Levels of Narrative Ideas: Colors on the SF Palette,” in which he discusses this story, time travel in sf, and chronoclasms: “…paradoxes arising from interference in preceding historical events.”
