Hmm... I read it a long time ago, but I vaguely remember that he (Lazarus)
was the book heroe's own son. He was somehow trasferred to the future then
came back on mission while serving in the Time Troops where his mother
served later on. Remember how the book begins when she (his mother) finds
herself in a bed with a dead man? :)) That was in some alternate reality
AFAIR... Geez, that book is totally cool :)))

Heh, yeah :)). Did you notice that the tech mailing lists tend to get very
off-topic lately? Longish threads about nothing, arguments coming back as
bumerangs - take a look at linux-kernel for instance, we've got there
another nice looong thread which leads straight to nowhere :))


p.s. yeah, I know - I got off topic :)))))
