Winston K Marks' "Forsyte's Retreat" (short story, humor, free): Fun managing a 4D hotel!

Illustration accompanying the original appearance in If magazine of short story Forsytes Retreat by Winston K Marks
If you've read Heinlein's "--And He Built a Crooked House--" (download), you can already guess the fun.

Only here the 4D part is not in fourth spatial dimension but in future time: Room A404 is in, say, year 1960; Room B404 occupies the same 3D physical space but in year 1970! And "fields" maintaining them keep collapsing - so guests in Rooms A404 & B404 keep ending up in the same space & time...
