2 Quotations from Sheila Williams

time traveller n. 2013 S. Williams Poet of Mars in Asimov’s Science Fiction Jan. 2/1 My father liked some Bradbury. He’d read ‘A Sound of Thunder’ to me and we’d spend a few hours discussing the consequences of a time traveler stepping on a butterfly, but he didn’t care for stories about ordinary life or fiction that held a surreal edge.
universal translator n. 2015 S. Williams Translation Enigmas in Asimov’s Science Fiction Mar. 3/1 Much as I’d like to believe that all humanity needs to do is pack a universal translator when negotiating with aliens, I’m pretty sure that won’t really be the case.
