I studied Chemistry at university and then spent over thirty years in classrooms across England teaching almost anything but Chemistry, including Photography, Communications Skills, General Science, Computing, and Information and Communications Technology.
In the 1990s I spent ten years writing abstracts of chemical patents. These were distributed to research scientists by subscription. Articles of mine have been published in magazines and I have written assignments used for assessing Communications Skills for a major international Examination Board. About twelve years ago I began writing science fiction.
What next? Complete the fourth novel-length book in the SF series following on from 'Passengers to Sentience', 'Passengers to Zeta Nine' and 'Passengers: Revelations'.

I have read Peter Salisbury's two novels, Passengers to Sentience and Passengers to Zeta Nine, so I was looking forward to this short story. It doesn't disappoint. In fact, I think it's my favourite of his so far.
Once again, the relationship between a man and a woman is central to the plot. In this case, the relationship is in jeopardy, and I found it quite moving. The author speculates about how technology would work in a future world and comes up with some very interesting ideas. Imagine if physics lessons were fun - that will give you an idea of how Peter Salisbury's books work.
I really liked the time travel/parallel world elements to the story. I don't want to give too much away, but something happens that causes a rift... the world is in chaos. Can it be repaired? Can the lost people be saved?
We learn about Quantum Fog and The Wanderers. My favourite line in the story: "Where is my hundred per cent Susie?"
