Review by: Jstevens9 on May 15, 2016 :
I don't know if the Mario V. Farina is some type of pseudonym, or if he is really a 93-year old man. Maybe I'm jaded by the Internet, but a part of me wonders if the author of these great SciFi stories isn't taking that on as a caricature.

Either way, I thoroughly enjoy them all. This one had a few typos in it, but I love the old-time feel of the science fiction in this short story, as well as his others, enough to overlook that. You just don't see a storyline like this in 2016. I love it.
