Looking for a Short Story

You know the feeling. You've read a story or a book that stayed with you -- all but the title and author, that is. I'm suffering a small, annoying torment along those lines. Please help, if you can.


For the SF/F readers among you: In the past couple of years, I read a time-travel story told from the POV of John Lennon. Someone had come back in time to pull him out just before he was assassinated. Does anyone else remember this story? Who wrote it, and what's the title?




It's a short story, not a novel.

It's not any of the following:

  • Get Back: Imagine… Saving John Lennon by Donovan Day.
  • Lifehouse by Spider Robinson.
  • Saint John Lennon by Daniel Hartwell
