Sam Merwin, Jr's "A World Apart" (short story, time travel, free)

A man driving down a road near his childhood hometown suddenly finds himself back 20 years - younger self, older town, his long dead mother still alive, ...

Finally the puzzle will reveal itself, helping him trivially escape to present.


  1. Sudden travel across time while driving down a particular place also features in at least one story of Philip K Dick. I cannot recollect the title though.
