5) CLEOPATRA


Swashbuckling time agent Phineas Bogg crash-landed in the year 1982, well outside his time-travel scope.  Though losing his guidebook (with all the operating instructions for his Omni time travel device) he picked up an unwitting apprentice in Jeffrey Jones, whose historical knowledge helps to fill in the gaps, even though Jeff now can’t get home.  Having saved the life of Queen Cleopatra, the combination of Jeffrey’s innocence and Bogg’s stubbornness managed to bring her to 1920, where she took over the underworld with Lucky Luciano and kidnapped Babe Ruth, making for another time-traveling game of Mad Libs.

About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
