About James Field

I was born in Essex, England, in 1951.

My early days of work as an engineer led me to Norway where I met my future wife Kari. She moved to England where we married and raised our two daughters. We moved back to Norway in 1985.

My wife and I now live far in the north, well within the Arctic Circle, in the land of the midnight sun. Life here is slow and comfortable, blessed by unspoilt nature and its magnificent moods.

Being creative in the written form gives me vast pleasure. I hope, dear reader, you will take a break from your world and lose yourself in one of mine.

Review by: Hannes Birnbacher on June 1, 2016 : (no rating)
Nice to read, very funny, a clever time travel story. Three stars for a good idea and excellent entertainment!

Remark: In my system, five stars is reserved for the most important SF of world literature, e.g. "1984" from George Orwell, and four stars for those I consider all-time best, for example Michael Crichton or some novels from Larry Niven.
This leaves three stars for really good Indie SF, but as everybody else at Smashworts does rate a SF novel at five stars if he liked it, I was detoriating the average rating of those authors I like best! So I decided to change my previous reviews, step by step, thereby deleting my smashwords rating. Watch out for my rating in the review text instead!

Review by: James Jenkins on Jan. 25, 2016 :
This book stands alone fine, it provides enough details that it was easy to understand relationships without being dependent on memories of others in the series.

It is fairly standard time travel, save the future, plot development. Not overly good or bad.

Review by: Wilde Blue Sky on Sep. 8, 2015 :
Two not very bright security guards get transported back in time and end up in a tournament in 1100s England.

The story was quite clever, but an introduction / some scene setting would have helped and more explanation / description of the action / scenes would have been useful.

Review by: Michael on June 4, 2015 :
Alf and Bert’s latest adventure involves a tumble through time. If you only need one reason to read this story, you should for their unique interpretation of ‘the butterfly effect’, which had me rolling about laughing. I enjoyed this scene so much I read it twice before carrying on with the rest of the story.

Alf and Bert are an odd duo. I guess you could think of them as the sci-fi equivalent of the two murderers from Shakespeare’s Richard III; men of ill deeds, suddenly faced with moral questions, forced the choose whether they should do the right thing or not. Without adding spoilers, they handle their predicament in a distinctly Alf and Bert manner.

With plenty of action, laughs, and trouble at every turn, this story definitely challenges for the position of the best Alf and Bert adventure yet.
