Ian Sales was only three when Neil Armstrong landed on the Moon, but he didn't see it on television because he grew up in the Middle East. He lived in Qatar, Oman, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, before returning to the UK for schooling, spending only the holidays abroad.

He came back to the UK in 2002 and settled in Yorkshire, where he now works as a database administrator for an ISP.

Published 2013. Being a SF devotee for many years, I’ve always been fascinated by parallel worlds stories. Unfortunately we have a bunch of them which are quite lame.
