About this Episode: "The Thief of Time" by Captain S.P. Meek

This story is one of the early speculative science fiction mysteries.  Published in the Astounding Stories of Super-Science: February 1930.

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of science fiction - however, I enjoyed seeing how the mystery was solved using well… I won’t tell you exactly how it’s solved - that would give it away. But… the scientific idea is interesting and… if possible, in real life, it would make crimes a lot harder to solve. 


Now for parents who need a break … the technology used in this story would come in handy… have you ever just wanted 5 minutes to yourself? Problem solved… but until these machines are readily available, it looks like hiding in the bathroom is still the best option.
