Samuel J Addison (1981 - the ever changing present) was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, to his parents. He learned to write fiction and program computers on the Commodore 64 and the Amiga 500, before wasting a lot of time drinking, not really having a job, and pretending to be a philosopher.
He now has three children, an infinitely enduring partner, and a job / jobs developing web applications. His debut novel, The Telstar, is one of his favourite books, actually. He hopes to one day visit space.

I wasn't terribly expressed. It was a rather confusing plot and the end is not rewarding.

The time is 1957, or is it 2013? Or maybe 1985?… oh well, something like that. The setting is along a stream in Appalachia, or is it aboard a Sputnik large enough to carry a cryogenic crypt, an organic recycling fuel center and a menu of pork and beans? Or is it maybe in the basement of a Scottish computer lab?
The story is dead serious speculative fiction… or is it maybe a Mark Twain tongue-in-cheek country-boy tale? Or a Douglas Adams spoof on both? And the existential attainment of peace of mind makes great sense, but does it really compute? Speaking of computing, wouldn’t you just love to command your own time travel agenda with an antique Commodore 64 home computer that makes friends with a ready-to-serve-you robot, the Iapetus-Five (your basic Yappity-Guy?)
If you want questions for all of your answers, shouldn’t you be reading The Telstar by Samuel J Addison?
