"The Drifter" by Lawrence Watt-Evans

Appeared in Amazing.

Man volunteers to hope aboard a time-travel experiment.  He and the scientist take a trip across universes where small changes accummulate every second--changes that add up over time.  Eventually, the worlds he occupies look little like the one he left.

Pretty fair fare of a time-travel yarn.  It reminded me of A.E. Van Vogt's classic "The See-Saw".  Title has an interesting play--the protagonist is a kind of drifter before, during, and after the story.
