Can you predict or change the future? Do you really want to? See short story "6 Months, 3 days" by C. J. Anders

"The man who can see the future has a date with the woman who can see many futures." - 1st sentence from "Six Months, Three Days," a story by Charlie Jane Anders and winner of the 2012 Hugo Award for Best Novelette. Full text available free online as of Feb 25, 2013.  Also see excerpt and comments in blog post "Romance Between Clairvoyants: Doomed to Fail?".

Entertaining and thought provoking story about ways in which we could/couldn't influence the future even if we could "see" it... and about whether or not we might really want to.
