Group Description

This is an edited archive for the SHWI-ISOT group.

Our premise in that group is that a few dozen people were shunted from April 2000 to April 1800 by unknown agents. People woke one morning outdoors, alone and completely bewildered. If they were fortunate, they had enough time to discover that they had a bag with a supply of food, a laptop and one CD in the drive.

Whether or not they were discovered immediately, they soon realised that they were not in the late 20th century anymore!

Some survived. Others did not. Those who managed to find their feet also found each other, electronically! They pooled their knowledge and set out to make their way in the 19th century that was about to begin. Sooner or later, the castaways began to influence events and an alternative timeline was born.

Newcomers arrived from time to time, always a little further along in the new timeline. The "uptimers" who were already "downtime" did their best to help or rescue the new arrivals. Some of them have done quite well "downtime". However, their time of origin and the existence of the laptops have been kept absolutely secret. Their lives and prosperity depend on it.

Discussion and posting of stories for this scenario takes place on the main group, at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SHWI-ISOT/.

These are our stories and downtime electronic exchanges.
