Sussex has a fictional meeting with the young Victorian writer Ida Pemberton, who has been projected forward into the Melbourne of 1993, a world Pemberton predicted in an actual short story a century earlier. Since Ida Pemberton died at the early age of twenty-six in 1894 from tuberculosis, Sussex is able to weave an effective "what if" story from what actually was' (Colin Steele, SF Commentary No 77, p.54).
