I had read a story, I believe by Philip K. Dick, but stand to be corrected. It is about this office worker who has some kind of a time tunnel through which he communicates with Old Testament desert shepherds.

Can anyone guide me to a name for the story?

  • do u mean time machine? time tunnel was a tv show from 1967-- maybe there is another usage?

1 Answer 1


This is Prominent Author by Philip K. Dick, published in 1954. A defective Jiffy-Scuttler provides a doorway to the past. One could regard this as an early example of the religious themes that would become more apparent in his later works.
