Synopsis:
Russ, a Caroline clone, and Savage Henry separate the Loot from Dino's pet without setting off a powerful bomb. The Loot is stolen by a street urchin who accidentally releases a Chronovore. Henry and Russ lose 10 and 20 years of their age respectively. The Chronovore follows them as they move through many realities. Trapping themselves in a Tapioca Cavern, they are rescued by four miners descended from dinosaurs. The Chronovore catches up and de-ages one of the miners to nonexistience. The six are trapped. Meanwhile, Ron looks for more Rons to kill (his count is now up over three hundred!).
