Not Your Average Time Travel Tale

A time traveler story set in hard fiction. Though confusing and sometimes difficult to follow, even with the notes on quantum physics accompanying the book, How to Life Safely in a Science Fiction Universe has a humorous story about the relationship between fathers and sons to tell at the center of it all. A quick read that some will enjoy, but that also asks readers to participate in its set reality.
