"Time-traveling's cheap and easy. It's space-traveling that ain't."
Almost anything that clever humans devise can be used for more than one purpose, some-times surprising even the inventors (Play-Doh, for example, was originally intended as a wallpaper cleaner). Now consider that machine over there in the corner, the one your smooth-talking acquaintance promises can solve your problem in no time at all . . . .
- The only other story that the ISFDb credits to A. Rector is "Loyal Companion," which we featured last May (HERE).
