"Hindsight" is a short story by Harry Turtledove, first printed in the mid-December 1984 issue of Analog (under the Eric Iverson pseudonym) and then published in Kaleidoscope in 1990.

The story, which takes place in Los Angeles in 1953, involves a science fiction author and a magazine editor who become suspicious of another author, Mark Gordian, who seems to be plagiarizing others work and writing eerily prescient fiction. Upon closer examination, it is revealed that Mark Gordian is actually Michelle Gordian, a time traveler from 1983 who has attempted to change her cynical future, dominated by the disappointments of Watergate and Vietnam.
