Salvador Dali's The Persistence of Memory is one of the most memorable images in the world. Now the surrealist masterpiece is at the centre of a compelling science-fiction story from world-renowned author Mike Resnick. His remarkable new tale reveals the connection between Dali's celebrated painting and quantum physics ...because, it turns out, Dali often travelled to an alternate universe, where he got a lot of his ideas from a young girl named Jinx. Meet Jinx in "World Behind the Door", along with Sigmund Freud, Werner Heisenberg, and other historical characters.
