Mission accomplished? Well, sort of . . .
"Get a horse!" That's what his boss had told him. And off Svetz went with the best intentions in the world. But finding a horse, especially when you've never seen one, was no easy matter, as Svetz quickly discovered. Undaunted and ready to set off again, Svetz headed into the past on another assignment: Bring back a sperm whale. And he tried, he really did. Then when he thought nothing else could possibly go wrong--somebody, or something, hijacked his time machine!
Great rib-tickling fantasy!
The first story in this book was so stupid that it put me off from reading the other stories.
