Mike Strong, assistant Professor of Logic at Kane University was having memory problems. Sometimes his class blinked out and in on him, and sometimes he had memories of an actress wife named Vera Spain - except he was unmarried! And there were other identities - he was a big-time criminal, he was one of the survivors after the Bomb was dropped - each with death soon in his future. Trying to sort thing out with colleague Paul Bender, he found he was spending more and more time in these other identities, leaving him with little chance to solve his problems.
