"Burning Churchill"

I banged out a story yesterday about a pair of time traveling art collectors who specialize in stepping in and retrieving works of art that were otherwise recorded in history as being destroyed.

They intercede as an infamous portrait of Winston Churchill is about to be tossed in a bonfire on New Year's Eve 1955. (People in the U.K. have probably heard of the Sutherland portrait).

I came up with what I think is one of the best twist endings I've ever done, as the pair return from whence they came and place the Churchill painting next to another retrieved artwork awaiting restoration.

The story is called "Burning Churchill".
