Product Description

TIME MACHINES BREAK REALITY. SEVERAL TIMES…

The time aerial seizes Harry’s mind and flings him into the past—but to the wrong time. He tries to set things right, but unleashes a catastrophe.

The debonair Richard arrives—but he is stalked from the future. Reality breaks—but the universe fights back.

Extirpators hover. The girl in black knows more than she should. Squamaflies swarm. Rose drinks at the Bad Luck Café. And someone hides in the Mind Library.

Time Aerials is a frame-story where books change, and stories mutate. Where minds leak into time, and precognition drives the evolution of consciousness. Where characters shuttle across the page and fall off the edge. An elegiac and multi-layered meditation on death and consciousness. And time.

So grab the arms of your chair. Stare at the shimmering aerial. And prepare for a bumpy ride.

More please.

Rarely does a book ensnare a reader from the first sentence on the first page. This one does so and its a roller coaster ride thereafter. For one's brain that is.
Amazing twists and turns. Somehow the author manages to keep connecting everything. Need your brain functioning to keep track of everything but an enjoyable challenge.
A pretty unique application of time travel. It's time that's traveling and unravelling and reversing. Not the people. The Great Mind keeps assessing and interfering when reality stretches to breaking point.
I'd be very interested to read what this remarkable author generates next.

This is a novel that explores the subject of consciousness, deep time and time travel.

What if time wasn't infinite? What if it was a limited resource that could run out? What if time was like a piece of string that had knots in it? Well, Great Minds think alike is all I can say to that without being too spoilerish.

This book has a single story arc that binds together a number of vignettes that contain some novel ideas in what to me is a well-travelled genre: time travel. The author iterates his way through these ideas in a number of humorous and innovative ways and there is a lot here to like considering it is a debut novel.

On a technical level, the prose in this book is excellent though obviously strongly influenced by the author's joint Australian and English heritage, which some readers might find a little unfamiliar at first. Overall I thought the story idea was good, however, I thought it lost some focus about two thirds of the way through the book and the ending left too many unanswered questions for my taste.

An author to keep an eye on.

Caveat: I know the author and I worked professionally on an earlier version of this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well written unusal kinda boring. 10 June 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I didn't feel like there was a story I could relate to here. A mish mash of well written short stories strung together with an unusual take on time travel is what you'll find. The whole thing gets old though. I finished it, but just wanted it to be over.
