Tim C. Taylor is an author of science fiction. He was born in Colchester, England in 1970.
When he first thought of writing a story in the early naughties, he got a bit ahead of himself and searched Amazon for authors sharing his name. To find so many Tim Taylors already published was a crushing blow. Luckily his parents had foreseen this and provided him with a middle name. Now girded with a 'Middle C' the author saw early success published in print and online magazines before concentrating on writing novels. Recently he has been published in the Newcon Press anthologies: 'Shoes, Ships and Cadavers' and 'Further Conflicts'.
In Spring 2011 he launched an indie publisher of short stories, specialising in Sci Fi, horror, and fantasy: Greyhart Press.
In the real world, he is husband, Dad, sometime-brewer, and oftentime-builder of Lego constructs to his son's designs. After twenty years earning a living making software, he is now a full-time author. So expect to see much more from him soon.

This was an interesting and entertaining book. The characters are well-developed, the plot believable and the prose engaging. Unlike many e-books, this book is very well edited - I did not pick up on any errors. I enjoyed this book very much and will be obtaining the second book as soon as I am able.

I have always preferred science fiction that is driven by ideas rather than by action and adventure. Too many SF stories are little more than tales of vampires, or cowboys, or villains transplanted into outer space. Original, intelligent, thought provoking science fiction is much more of a challenge to write, but is so much more rewarding to read.
Tim Taylor’s novel ‘The reality War’ is just that: Original, intelligent and thought provoking. His hero, Radlan Saravanan, has inadvertently set in motion a chain of events which threatens to wipe out his time line and replace it with one where Reptiles are the dominant species.
Tim’s writing is sharp and effortless, and he quickly draws his reader into a bizarre world where alternate realities vie for existence just under the surface of a sleepy English town.
The book ends on quite a cliff hanger. Sometimes this can leave the reader feeling a little cheated. This book doesn’t. Here the reader is simply left wanting more.
Fortunately book two is due for release soon.
