A magazine writer stuck for a story takes two interns and goes looking for the author of a newspaper classified ad that reads: “Wanted: Somebody to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. P.O. Box 91 Ocean View, WA 99393. You’ll get paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed. I have only done this once before”. A romantic comedy with a science fiction theme, this is an unexpectedly sweet and intriguing story, complete with a perfectly preposterous conclusion (Klaus Ming March 2016).
