34 Aeronauts from the Future (Cover Story)
Peter Hassall is bemused by reports from around the world of flying time-travellers employing unknown technology. In the first instalment of his two-part article, he considers accounts of floating platforms and jet-pack men.

40 Time Storms
Odd mists, physical injuries and weird jumps in time... Jenny Randles goes in search of a strange and misunderstood phenomenon, until now buried in the UFO literature - although, she argues, it has nothing to do with alien encounters.

46 The Apocalypse Addicts
Back in 2000, a self-proclaimed time-traveller called John Titor arrived on the Internet. His story had everything - nuclear war, exotic computer hardware, and the threat of death from contaminated beef products. Richard Leon reveals the history of the future, as told by TimeTravel_0.
