Arthur Smith is a middle-aged civil servant living in Croydon, married to Jill, and with two cats. Unbeknown to him, he has inherited a gene for time travel. The gene, whose name is Trevor, has been around since the beginnings of life on Earth, but his only previous expression has been in a mushroom. Trevor activates on Arthur's 54th birthday, and promptly begins dumping him in a variety of historical scenarios including the Battle of Hastings, The Creation, the American moon shot, and Columbus's discovery of the Americas. In each event Arthur is instrumental in vandalising the tides of history. But not only is Arthur seriously meddling in antiquity, he is also interfering in his own and others' personal backstories. Powers way beyond human comprehension decide to step in...
