Accidental Hero

I'm getting some mail about an anachronism in this story. In the first chapter, I mention Ian's age at 9 when his first act takes place in the spring of 1965. Later, I make a reference to him having a home computer when Symphony comes to live with him. That's jumping the time line by a bit. In fact, it would be a least three or four years before that was likely to take place. So, I've decided to re-date Ian's first adventure in heroism to 1969 and hope that doesn't mess up any other parts of the story.
I also make mention of "safe sex" and that's a reference that some think is out of sequence as well. However, in my part of the world, condom was not a common word in the seventies. More likely to be "French Safe" or the more technical prophylactic. I'm not going to mess with that. It won't damage the context it was used in.
Cheers and I hope you continue to enjoy the story.
