I'm looking for a short story that's slightly similar to "Under the Dome." Note: this is not Clifford Simak's "All Flesh is Grass," as I've been reading it and it's not ringing any bells. I also don't seem to recall this being a longer story, like a novel.
The plot went like this: a la "Under the Dome," some kind of invisible dome or barrier appeared around a town. I'm pretty sure those in the dome could communicate with those outside the dome.
It was discovered this obstruction wasn't really a dome or barrier. The town was something like one second in time ahead of or behind the rest of the world. Aliens had established the dome and I think in the end, the aliens "fixed" time and everything was restored to normal. I don't remember enough of the story to say that's the exact ending...it's just what I think I remember.
Definitely, though, the time difference is what put a barrier between the town and the rest of the world.
It was more sci-fi and less horror, so it wasn't all that much like "Under the Dome," only in the sense of having the obstruction around the town.
My guess is this story was part of an anthology, as I used to read a lot of those, particularly sci-fi. That also means the book was likely published in the '60s, '70s or early to mid '80s, as I used to frequent a great used bookstore. It's possible it was published earlier than that, though probably unlikely. It could have been by Asimov...but then it could have been by any sci-fi writer.
Sorry if that's not completely helpful...I'm going from distant memory. :P
Thanks in advance for any info! :)
