I went back and forth over whether to rate this story 3 or 4 stars. It's really in between, but I gave it the benefit of the doubt.

A rather simplistic story with no particular twists or turns. Some of it's even a bit hokey and tired. But, I thought the writing was otherwise pretty good, and it kept me entertained without moaning.

Simply put, a guy figures out time travel and has all the expected fun with it without any of the usual consequences.

It's a time-travel story. It takes the inventor several attempts (and a bartender) to get the future he wants to come out right.

It's narrated by the bartender. The characters (including the narrator) seem sketchy, and the plot isn't all that original--it's nothing exciting, nothing painful. An okay story.
