Patricia Cowan is very old, and remembers things that don't seem possible. Her childhood, her years at Oxford during World War II - those are solid. But after that?

She remembers the bomb that killed President Kennedy in 1963 - and Kennedy in 1964, declining to run again after the nukes took out Miami and Kiev. And the moon outside her window: does it host a benign research station, or a command post bristling with nuclear missiles?
