When a future becomes an alternate past.

I filed away the books of mine that I brought back from my parents house. One of them was the "Billy and the Boingers Bootleg". While flipping thru it, I came across the short storyline where Binkey's closet of anxieties served up himself from twenty years in the future.

Interestingly, the present right now is "twenty years in the future" from the publication of that book, and is now an "alternative past". Unless I've missed the newspaper articles where President Springsteen fired all the striking workers at the Federal Self-Tying Shoelace Plant...
