Corrupting Dr Nice by John Kessel
Book DescriptionAugust Faison and his gorgeous young daughter, Genevieve, are rogues of the first water - seasoned swindlers who rove across time in search of new victims to fleece. Now the most precious pigeon of them all has fallen into their laps, in Jerusalem at the time of Christ. Dr. Owen Vannice is too innocent, and far too rich, for his own good. A fabulously wealthy young amateur paleontologist who has just spent the last year, and billions of his parents' dollars, doing research in the Cretaceous period, he finds himself stranded in the Holy City with a rapidly growing baby dinosaur in tow. Simon is a disillusioned disciple whose master has been kidnapped uptime by colonists from the future. Now he works for the exploitive crosstime corporations, which have turned his timeline into a tourist trap, complete with luxury hotels and junkets to the Crucifixion. When a desperate act of sabotage brings them all together, their lives are drastically transformed.

Secret History of Science Fiction, Paperback (October 2009)» View all books by John Kessel
Raises the question, If Thomas Pynchon's "Gravity's Rainbow" had won the Nebula award in 1973, would the future distinction between literary fiction and science fiction have been erased? Exploring the possibility of an alternate history of speculative fiction, this work reveals that the lines between genres have already been obscured.
