* Ray Bradbury's "A Sound of Thunder" (short story, science fiction, free)

Irresponsible time traveling human hunters go hunting T-Rex tens of millions of years back, & slightly modify the history; & finally return to a nightmare in their own time. Story is not always logical, but I was entertained.

  1. L Sprague de Camp's "A Gun for Dinosaur" is a very similar story. Arthur Clarke's "Time's Arrow" is an interesting variant.
