It is often said that God created the heaven and the earth in just six days, this explains why he did such a shoddy job and why Clockwork Inc. works tirelessly to stop the very fabric of the universe from tearing itself apart completely. The employees of Clockwork Inc. have all in some way been attracted to the company by the possibility of adventure and living a life full of 'what ifs' and 'who knows?' But Roger Hanover's journey to this conclusion was somewhat different to his colleagues.
Because, like most children Roger grew up fascinated by the great beyond and the unknown and it was this coupled with witnessing a suicide at the galaxy's biggest space port on his birthday that inspired Roger to grab life by the throat and join the ranks of this universally respected company with promises of adventure and seeing the unseen.
But, it isn't just the possibility of adventure that fuels Roger's fire forcing his brain to become giddy with excitement, because when you have easy access to any number of galaxies and centuries, it doesn't take a brain surgeon to work out that there's money to be made.
And so Roger finds himself going this way and that, frontwards and backwards tying himself in mental knots whilst always managing to make a few bucks. But living several life times at once proves to be an exhausting experience for our hero and so he decides to use his knowledge of time travel to go back and warn his younger self of the trouble he faces if he continues of that particular path. But it is while he is stood at the tip of the galaxy's largest space port waving to his younger self, he realises that the suicide he witnessed as a small boy was in fact his own.
It is then left to the reader to decide whether or not this endless circle is a unhappy ending or a happy ending (clue: it's not.)
