About Robert P McAuley

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, I now reside in Long Beach, N.Y. I worked in New York City as an Art Director for 3 different magazines one of which was UFO magazine. I've been writing short stories for the past 20 years and found Time Travel to be my favorite topic. After writing Time Travel Adventures of the 1800 Club: Book 1, I wrote books 2 through 15 and am presently working on book 16. In between I've penned a young adult time travel book, two aviation trivia books, a book about a family of vampires, a romantic western and another time travel book plus 'Sky Ship', a high-action thriller.

Bob McAuley's "1800 Club" series is a new benchmark in the time-travel genre. His innovative, unique scenarios and plot lines are refreshing. The idea that carefully selected members of the 1800 Club could travel back in time to ensure historical events don't go off-track is unique and readers will be hooked immediately. Don't miss a single episode of this terrific series! ....and keep 'em coming, Bob!

I downloaded this e-book in the morning and couldn’t put it down! The story line was fantastic: People from our future send probes back to keep track of history because they discovered that sometimes history veers of course and they must go back and straighten it out. Their only problem is that because they cleaned up their atmosphere so well they have a hard time breathing the air of the 1800s, and they can’t go back and fix it. They solved this problem by starting the 1800 Club. Because the club members playact at actually living in the 1800s, they can easily slip in and out of the 1800s and fix the glitch in history, thus assuring that events turn out as the history books say they did. The author has a unique ability to make the reader feel as though they were present in the scene and I felt I could smell old New York City along with the horse waste the time period generated. Bottom line is that I finished reading book 1 and I am going to download book 2 this evening. Kudos to the author and I hope he keeps writing and adding to this series. 5 stars

Interesting take on the time travel theme from a pure fantasy perspective. There’s nothing sci-fi about this tale—no heavy discussions of time travel theory, nor any thought given to things like causal loops etc. In this tale protectors of the future travel to the past in order to insure that the past does not change, and therefor the future with it. We’re not told how it’s even possible that the past could begin to change in the first place, and we’re not shown any trickle down after effects when it does. For instance, when Roosevelt decides NOT to charge up San Juan Hill, we’re not told how this effected the future. One would assume that the future would be changed simultaneously with the past, but here—apparently not. Rather, the story focuses on these future time protectors and how they manage to right things in the past once they’ve started to go wrong. Teddy Roosevelt doesn’t charge up San Juan Hill? Let’s go back to a time slightly before the charge and see if we can change his mind through normal psychological manipulations. The story reads more like a light television drama from the 60s (thinking of shows like The Time Tunnel). Not a bad way to spend an afternoon.

what an interesting book. My dad helped renovate Ford's Theatre and the Peterson House where Lincoln died so this story was close to my heart. I also love the works of Jack Finney (From Time to Time; and TIme and Time Again) and this book is written in that same type of style--going back in time, trying to change time. kudos Robert McAuley for your interesting work.

Many times you have to read quite a bit of a the book to understand the author's style. Mr. McAuley has a rythym that is so easy to follow that you immediately get into the flow of the story and all the characters. The down side is the stories end too quickly. The next is always as good or betterthan the last.

Wow! I just finished ‘Time Travel Adventures of The 1800 Club’ and again, Wow! I found this book to be a cut above so many other time travel novels and told my friends that this is an author to follow. Mr. McAuley has the ability to bring the reader back in time and make them feel as though they were walking along the streets of New York in the 1800s. The reader almost experiences the smells and sounds of the time. He has so many twists that you think you know where you’re going when you suddenly find yourself on a different tack. He has done his research well because many times the people he uses are the people who were around in the time period he has selected. I can’t wait for Book 2!
