“You Were Right, Joe,” J. T. McIntosh, 1957 — An unidentified man is transported to the future, an idyllic place where the only rules are “don’t annoy anyone and try not to be easily annoyed.” He finds himself in a Charles Atlas body, a little disconcerted. Women freely and repeatedly offer sex to him; eventually, he refuses and gets a bracelet indicating that he wants to be leave alone. Meanwhile, he continues to report to Joe, presumably his partner on the other side. Anachronisms begin to appear: a sabre-toothed tiger, a cavemen, men with muskets. It’s revealed that his experiment has created a weakened in the temporal membrane, which will close on the futuristic side without incident, but which will not be good for Joe–unless he really is listening.
