Synopsis

1949. The Tithonus Retirement Home, deep in an English forest. Sweet rationing has ended, the lights have come back on in London, and Matron is in a good mood. Celebrations are underway when a new resident arrives.
 
Steel is alone. And tired. Soon he realises that linear time has stopped, but not only for the people in the home...
 
All irregularities will be handled by the forces controlling each dimension. Transuranic, heavy elements may not be used where there is life. Medium atomic weights are available: Gold, Lead, Copper, Jet, Diamond, Radium, Sapphire, Silver and Steel. Sapphire and Steel have been assigned.
