This came to me via the Best Science Fiction Stories email service and tells the story of a convicted serial killer sentenced to "death" by chronotransference - a method of downloading a person's mind into the brain of a person from the past.
The story touches on many subjects that Sawyer enjoys writing about; dinosaurs, time travel, the up/downloading of human consciousness.
The fun aspect of the story, and a distinctly Canadian one, is getting around the nastiness of capital punishment. Downloading a mind into another mind, of a person from the past, who is about to die seems like a nice way to achieve an execution without getting our hands dirty.
The convict convinces the judge to transfer him to a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
I know, sounds strange but give it a try, it's only 3,800 words.
