Publisher's Summary

Experience one of television’s greatest science-fiction series, The Twilight Zone - fully dramatized for audio! Featuring a full cast, music and sound effects, and today’s biggest celebrities in modern radio dramatizations.

Paul Driscoll uses a time machine with the noble intention to go back in time and alter past events (in such a way as to minimize the loss of human life). After failing to warn a Hiroshima police captain about the atomic bomb, failing to assassinate Adolf Hitler (in August 1939 immediately before the outbreak of World War II in September 1939), and failing to change the course of the Lusitania (to avoid being torpedoed (by a World War I German U-boat), he accepts the hypothesis that the past cannot be changed. He then uses the time machine to journey to the town of Homeville, Indiana, in 1881 (with the intention of escaping and living out a quiet, uncomplicated life). He then realizes that President James A. Garfield will get shot the next day. However, he allows the assassination to happen. After reading in a history book that Homeville's schoolhouse will burn down because of a kerosene lantern thrown from a runaway wagon, he spots the wagon and attempts to prevent this event from occurring. But instead he causes the fire he intended to prevent. He returns to his own time, having learned not to tamper with the past.

A dimension of sound, a dimension of mind: listen to more Twilight Zone dramas.

    I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    "Going to the past"

    Time travel is the most frequently used idea in fiction writing, but this tale is all about how changing events is not possible. Very good Twilight Zone.

    "Don't read the Publisher's Summary!"

    A good episode with a feeling of uncertainty about the ending, unless you have read the publisher's summary. Those responsible for it should be fired. Way to ruin a listen...
