Description: Keith Winton is an editor for a science fiction magazine. With his glamorous co-worker girlfriend, Betty, he visits his friends one day in their elegant estate in the Catskills, unfortunately on the same day as an experimental rocket is to be launched. Betty has to go back to New York. Keith is alone in his friends' garden, deep in thought, when, suddenly, the engine of the rocket (whose launch has been a failure) crashes and explodes on his friends' residence. The rocket having been equipped with a brand new capacitor capable of storing previously unheard amounts of energy -it had to release that once in outer space- has it instead unloading its full power meters away from Winton, allowing his physical form to 'shift' through dimensions, taking him to a strange but deceptively similar parallel universe. Wild-eyed, Keith is astonished to see how credits have replaced dollars; is amazed when he encounters some scantily-clad pin-up girls who are, at the same time, astronauts; is driven to stupor when he encounters his first lunar native vacationing on Earth. But it is when he tries to get back to his usual world when he finally understands his problem. For a solution he has to get in touch with the impossibly 'larger than life' hero who leads Humanity's struggle against the Arcturian menace and his "artificial brain" sidekick 'Mekky'...getting involved in a last-minute plan to thwart the onslaught of a fearsome alien superweapon against the Solar System and Earth.
