Description

Predictability has come a long way. The computers of the future can tell you if you’re going to win a war before you fire a shot. Unfortunately they’re predicting perpetual standoff between the Terran and Centaurian Empires. What they need is something unpredictable, what they get is Thomas Cole, a man from the past accidently dragged forward in time. Will he fit their calculations, or is he the random variable that can break the stalemate? – The Variable Man first appeared in the September, 1953 issue of Space Science Fiction magazine. (Summary by Gregg Margarite)

Customer Reviews

Excellent Listen

It's a superb story, with a relatively simple juxtaposition utilized to great effect. A man from the past, a man who uses his hands to fix things transported to a world where science and data reign supreme and where specialization has rendered men like Thomas Cole obsolete. Until now that is, but will Cole's presence save or doom the people of Earth? Read and find out!
