A music critic goes back in time. He tries to fix his love life. He tries to save Kurt Cobain. He tries to prevent his sister's bad relationship. And he accidentally turns his father into the biggest folk rock star of all time. Did it work? Hmmm...

I'd like to thank Jeff Winston, Pamela Phillips, Henry DeTamble, Jud Elliott, Billy Pilgrim, Sam Deed, James Cole, John Titor, Dan Vasser, Livia Beale, Tru Davies, Daniel Eakins, Sam Beckett, Al Calavicci, Marty McFly, Emmett Brown, Bill S. Preston, Ted “Theodore” Logan, Hiro Nakamura, Eckels, Aaron, Abe, Will, Hector, Sherman, Mr. Peabody, and anyone else who has walked in their shoes.

The original paperback and ebook versions of this novel were dedicated to Alane. This version is still for her, but I'll also dedicate it to my past and future selves for coming up with a song-stealing musician character a full decade before the film YESTERDAY did it.
