Mike Resnick's "Distant Replay" (short story, fantasy)

This post is not new content. When I originally wrote it, I was sick of coming up with only fantasy stories when looking for modern fiction - so I tucked it away in an inconspicuous corner under Brief Posts. Now that it's a Hugo 2008 nominee, already more than one pages on this site reference it; taking it out to its own post makes linking easier.
