About Ian Weaver

I am from Louth, Lincolnshire and was brought up against a service background; my Father a serving member of the RAF for just short of forty years. I was educated in Grantham and joined the Fleet Air Arm, Royal Navy as an Observer on Anti-Submarine Seaking helicopters in 1979. I served on various ships around the world including HMS Endurance in Antarctica; the setting for the second book in the series, Frozen in Time.

In 1989 I transferred to the Royal Air Force and flew as a navigator in Tornado F3 fighter aircraft. After a tour at RAF Leuchars, Scotland, I qualified as an instructor at RAF Coningsby. In 1996 I was involved in a mid-air collision and ejected suffering serious injuries to my head, neck and chest. Two years later I was medically discharged and was employed by the RAF teaching in the Tornado Simulator at Coningsby. In 2009 I was made redundant as the F3 started to be phased out of service and I now live in North Hykeham, Lincoln, pursuing my writing career.

I enjoy story-telling and this is reflected in my writing style. My first novel covers several genres; primarily action and adventure but with the inclusion of some fantasy. My influences include Desmond Bagley, and more recently, Clive Cussler’s earlier novels.

I am married with 2 children and 3 step children. I enjoy golf, photography, entertaining and socialising with his family and friends. Of course that is when I’m not fulfilling my duties as a full time house husband and novelist.

Review by: Tom Spears on Nov. 07, 2011 : star star star star star
I enjoy a story that is unpredictable, one that doesn't telegraph every turn of the plot so thoroughly in advance that the story is obvious before it unfolds.

Time and Again certainly provided many surprises. From the moment the main character floats back in time to 1942, you think you know where this story is headed, but you don't.

Time and Again is a well written exploration of modern and WWII military operations. The author, with many years in the RAF, certainly demonstrates his knowledge down to the details. I enjoyed the gritty realism of the opening helicopter crash, as well as other action sequences in the book. The heros and heroines are likable, the villains are generally despicable-- all in keeping with the genre.

This book is a great read if you enjoy military action, thrillers, mysteries or time travel novels.

A very enjoyable first book. An intriguing story, which kept you reading to find out the answers that the characters were trying to do too!
Good use of detail in the flying portions helping to paint the picture of the scene.
I immediately read the first chapter of the sequel as soon as I had finished Time and Again.

TIME AND AGAIN

IAN WEAVER

This novel is an entertaining and intriguing mixture of action, war, romance and science fiction. It reminded me of the work of Christopher Priest.

Weaver lives up to his name by weaving a complex narrative which ranges over time, space and personality. The characters face challenges and change because of them. I liked the fact that both his heroes and villains are entertaining and multi-dimensional.

The first chapter gives a lot of technical detail. Personally, this is not what I like but soon Weaver's narrative gusto took over and I was as caught up in events as much as his protagonist.

I shall look forward to his new novel: Frozen in Time.
