It is 1988 and the Pet Shop Boys have just topped the UK charts with 'Heart'. We are a whole two weeks away from Whitney Houston achieving a similar feat in the U.S. with the breathtaking 'Where Do Broken Hearts Go?'. Ronald Reagan is the President of the United States of America and the most kick-ass video game on the market is Carrier Command. The one pound note is no longer legal tender in the U.K. and there’s talk of Europe’s tallest skyscraper being built in Canary Wharf.

Linda Grace has spent three decades yearning to turn back the clock - to the year of acid washed jeans and the very first series of Red Dwarf. Now she is there. She has journeyed from 2018 to 1988 to bring her best friend, Josh, back from the dead. Haunted by a recurring dream, she is convinced it is possible.

Linda has been chosen by a bunch of unlikely inventors to be a guinea pig for pioneering research. But can a university project really send her back to 1988, or is it all in her imagination?

Sci-fi meets urban mystery in this weird and wonderful tale, inspired in part by fact and in part by a real-life dream. A heartwarming, occasionally funny short story for adult readers of all ages.

This is an 11,000 word short story.
