    Good story

    Just over 50 pages, it was a good story about going back in time and trying to end The Hot War. Great descriptive writing so you feel like you are watching the action in your mind.

    A Thought Provoking Read

    It was the year of my birth that things started to go wrong. By 1980 the world was a bombed out husk patroled by marauding mutants. A tiny group of scientists depend upon a questionable technology to travel back in time in order to stop the chaos before it began. So begins this facinating look at the consequences of war and the lengths to which the human spirit will soar to save humanity.

    I really enjoyed this story from the catastrophic beginning through the explanation of the technology to the throught provoking conclusion. The story is a fast paced classic that is sure to please. I highly recommend it.

    For lovers of Arthur C. Clarke and Issac Asimov comes a fun short story from the classic sci-fi writer Elizabeth Chater.
