Science...Science Fiction...Both genré's offer this gifted author a treasure trove filled with material his adept mind can twist and reshape into some of the finest entertainment available in e-book today.
TEN YEARS launches us on a Time Travel journey with more pot holes and hiccups than I am sure H.G. Wells ever could have imagined, but he does adroitly it seems almost like second nature.
Peter Ingraham in the year 2013, along with his company has not only discovered the Science-FICTION of H.G. Wells' Time Travel is POSSIBLE, it EXISTS and they have successfully devised this cutting edge technology.
With the excitement of a child facing the wild mystery of the unknown, Peter leaps at the opportunity to be the
guinea pig who'll explore this unknown...much like Columbus, Magellan, and Ponce DeLeon did when they set sail long ago in uncharted, unknown waters.
Think of it...what were those sailors aboard the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria thinking when they hauled anchor setting off for the distant horizon and the edge of the known world? What revelations do you think they were expecting to discover? Did they really believe the earth was flat and they would reach the end and drop like some weighted pawn into The Universe's sense of humor?
Peter Ingraham, a modern day Columbus stepped into the circle of his Time Machine's Power, dialed up twenty-four hours in the future, then vanished.
One day...the calibrations had been carefully entered...so what went wrong?
TEN YEARS is a brilliant, microscopic look at the vagaries of science from every angle...and how little we may actually understand about the dynamics of how the Universe truly operates.
I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this short, action packed story.
Five Stars I give Mr. Hartley for this amazing Sci-Fi Fantasy, and thank him for taking H.G. Wells to the NEXT level.
