I have enjoyed good science fiction ever since I got addicted to the original Star Trek television series with William Shatner as Captain Kirk. I do not like British science fiction . . . I absolutely LOVE it! I can get over 300 television channels and one that I could not live without is BBC America, where I can watch the long lived British television show Dr. Who. For some reason the best British minds look at science fiction with a bit of a different slant than American writers. If I tell Americans that a man moves into the future by 7 and a half seconds . . . I'm betting that the mental picture that Americans get is much different than the reality of this 1955 sci-fi plot. When I finally 'got it' I had a 'Gee whiz, I never thought about it that way.' What a very cool and unique way that they handled the concept. I won't ruin it for you . . . but see if it unfolds like you would expect it to. If you like sci-fi just a little bit . . . you will really enjoy this adventure about atomic science and visions of the future. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn and drizzle plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy an amazing tale of the atom and gangsters who meddle with atomic research and unintentionally send a famous American nuclear scientist into the future.
