About the Author
Edward M. Grant spent his childhood in the South-West of Britain and studied Physics at Oxford, but now lives in Canada. He wrote magazine articles and worked on numerous indie movies in and around London, including co-writing a vampire feature that was later shot in California. He has travelled the world, been a VIP at several space shuttle launches, survived earthquakes and a tsunami, climbed Mt Fuji and visits nuclear explosion sites as a hobby. He grew up on pulp horror and SF novels and still has a soft spot for both. However, his background as a physicist helps him write stories toward the harder end of the SF spectrum.

Here’s a sci-fi fish story, a short but “Kraken” good yarn, a classically-styled time-traveller’s tale to curl up with by the fire on a chilly November night.
This is quite a short tale, so revealing almost anything of the story might spoil it. It reminded me of Wells and Verne and the original Jaws movie… with space suits.
While I didn’t love The One That Got Away quite as much as Welcome To The Future (I would have given that one 7 out of 5 stars if I could), I’d definitely bite on more adventures from Uncle Jim and his time-travelling Morris Minor!
Reminiscent of the classic sci/fi available in the 1950s and 1960s magazines devoted to it.
