The Accidental Time Machine by Joe Haldeman For Susan Allison: about time. 1 The story would have been a lot different if Matts supervisor had been watching him when the machine first went away. The older man was hunched over his oscilloscope screen, staring into the green pool of light like a tweedy and corpulent bird of prey, fiddling with two knobs, intent on a throbbing bright oval that wiggled around, eluding his control.

I didnt volunteer for the job, not initially, but I wasnt smart enough to miss the targets in Basic Training. And sniper sounded cool, so I signed up for the school when they ...
