Police Operation - review

This is another story by H. Beam Piper.

This one handles the ParaTime concept (e.g. multiple quantum realities) in a single narrative that takes place in our world.

The raw story is a simple one and would have minimal repercussions had the story worked out differently but it does a great job of setting the stage for many aspects of how ParaTime works and how the people from the 1sr Level handle their incursions.

The science is a bit off in this one, especially in how extra-terrestrail life is touched upon but that, again, could be due to divergent forks in reality which our reality is not a part of.

This was the longest of the stories included in the set of stories I read, but it was well worth the read.

In fact, I think the main character, and the ParaTime Police, would be a good mine for Hollywood to adapt into film.

Of course, I have no faith that they would do it correctly - so the result would likely be garbage,
