All irregularities will be handled by the forces controlling each dimension. Transuranic, heavy elements may not be used where there is life. Medium atomic weights are available: Gold, Lead, Copper, Jet, Diamond, Radium, Sapphire, Silver and Steel. Sapphire and Steel have been assigned.

‘5… 4… 3… 2… 1…’

The Space Shuttle Aspirant is in a decaying orbit. Its engines dead. In one hundred minutes’ time, it will hit the atmosphere and burn up. This should have been a routine technical mission: just a minor time anomaly to fix, a small crack in the corridor. That’s why Silver and Gold have been assigned.

But the Aspirant’s crew have been killed, in a variety of impossible ways. Something is pounding on the outside of the airlock door, trying to break in. And now Silver has been attacked by a monster that can’t exist.

Time to call in some help…
