Short. Entertaining story, in this day of doomsday preppers, it draws your attention to the things we take for granted. I may be able to tune a car, but I would have no idea how to cast the engine. This true is about most of the things of our day.://;_ylu=X3oDMTE1Z2ViZHQ5BHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMwRjb2xvA2FjMgR2dGlkA01PVVM1NF8xMjM-/SIG=11tusopsc/EXP=1369270599/**http%3a//

Not too bad, but a bit forced. Reminds me of Twain's Connecticut Yankee...but a bad version!

A short story of 38 pages written from the point of view of a Viking who encounters someone from the present day. This is well written and makes the point that each of us are 'of our time'. It may wrk on TV but could we survive in our own countries of a century ago let alone in the far past or far future? Worth a read

Thought provoking and intriguing story considering the issues around travelling back in time. I first read this 35 years ago and was pleased to come across it again, the tale had often caused me to reflect on the specialisation of our lives,

Great writing, and a compelling story about inadvertent time travel and it's consequences
