Latimer had one aim in life: he wanted to be a Space Scout. Unknowingly his indomitable spirit so impressed the Academy that he was granted his chance of becoming one of the very few who made it through to this point in time, or was it space? Or was it a mixture of Space Time and something else... but I digress, and Roust will kill me!
The fact of the matter is it was as though the traffic lights failed, or the laws of space travel got screwed up, and two bodies appeared out of hyper-space in the same place, and KAPOW!!!
This is not in any way a stroke story, but if you are into S.F. you will enjoy this little gem, believe me; would I lie to you?
