Actually, his post talks of many stories, but I read only two real recommendations here:
- John Barnes' "Things Undone"; download; December 2009: 'a very long novelette (over 17,000) words, and a stunning one. about an aristocrat (of sorts) and his partner who have a job trying to minimize the effects on history of time travelers. In the end it’s very moving, very involving -- I was reminded of one of my favorite time travel stories of all time, John Brunner’s "The Fullness of Time". Clearly one of the best stories of the year, a definite Hugo contender, and probably the best story Baen's Universe has ever published.'
- Naomi Kritzer's "The Good Son"; download; February 2009: "about a faery who comes to our world for the love of a woman, and in so doing creates himself a past and a family -- and learns what it is to be part of a family."
