Michael Williams gets - or will get - a visit from a very special traveller:
"...As for the first, well, because I'll answer your questions, satisfy your curiosity, and leave you always wanting more," [Sherman] said with a grin, and sneezed. "As for why I'm here, in the grand scheme of things, well, I'm an applied historian."This is heavy...
"That's an oxymoron," I said, almost smiling despite myself, and Sherman laughed.
"Yeah, I'm glad you appreciate it, that's probably why I decided to stay with you. Really though, I'm a time traveler."
"Oh, of course, that's excellent," I said. I'd always wanted to meet a time traveler."
