  • The Reality War Book1: The Slough of Despond on Oct. 15, 2012

    I have always preferred science fiction that is driven by ideas rather than by action and adventure. Too many SF stories are little more than tales of vampires, or cowboys, or villains transplanted into outer space. Original, intelligent, thought provoking science fiction is much more of a challenge to write, but is so much more rewarding to read. Tim Taylor’s novel ‘The reality War’ is just that: Original, intelligent and thought provoking. His hero, Radlan Saravanan, has inadvertently set in motion a chain of events which threatens to wipe out his time line and replace it with one where Reptiles are the dominant species. Tim’s writing is sharp and effortless, and he quickly draws his reader into a bizarre world where alternate realities vie for existence just under the surface of a sleepy English town. The book ends on quite a cliff hanger. Sometimes this can leave the reader feeling a little cheated. This book doesn’t. Here the reader is simply left wanting more. Fortunately book two is due for release soon.

    Had I access to this work many years ago perhaps I would have spent my life actively involved in the sciences, instead of being on the outside looking in.
