I like this chap!

Review by: Richard Christopher on May. 31, 2011 : star star star star
Time travel/alternate history somewhat in the 'Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court' (or' Crosstime Engineer') vein. Reads like the Mission Diary it's framed as - the writing is promising journeyman work - but for a REALLY interesting mission. The main characters are pretty bloody minded - nukeing a medieval city to get rid of maybe 5% of the population would take a thicker skin than mine, for example. Heinlein's 'Time Enough For Love' is referenced, staying just this side of the homage/fanfic line. Was surprised to find this one offered for free - it's worth paying for. There is certainly worse out there from major publishers. The author might - if he hasn't already - consider submitting to Baen Books, which has published a deal of similarly themed work.

Future project

A discussion about WW2 lead to the idea that two teams of Meddlers in Time could havc been operating during WW2.

One boosting technology (pro Germany)

One other interfering in politics (anti-Germany)

What one would be my team and why...
