More About the Author
In practice I have left my attacks on classic works behind me and plunged deep into the future. I am currently a writer of speculative science fiction, with two titles running- "Another Space in Time" and "Another Space in Time, Returns". My third Spiderworld may appear as early as the middle of 2013, time will tell. If you have read this far I feel very flattered. Thank you.

Jeannie Walker - Award Winning Author of "Fighting the Devil" - A True Story of Consuming Passion, Deadly Poison, and Murder
The world itself was fascinating with plants, creatures and environments, like but unlike the ones we know on Earth. As a New Zealander, I was personally delighted to meet live moas "with attitude" on Goranas. Moas are huge flightless birds unique to my country, but now sadly extinct, (except on Goranas.) Goranas's giant constrictor snakes were interesting, specially when you can step over one while mistaking it for a log.
The astronomical arrangements between Goranas and its pulsar star were about as different from Earth's as you could imagine and yet producing similar conditions for life to thrive in. This sun did not set; it simply went out for the night. I'd heard of pulsar stars but it takes a clever fiction writer like Richard Bunning to contrive a plausible way for it to work out as a "home" star suitable for human life.
I easily identified with the character Rodwell and enjoyed seeing him develop gradually through the story from a confused and vulnerable naked new "arrival" to a dangerous force to be reckoned with towards the end. I grew to like him and felt sure he would later honour his debts to those who freely helped him when he was in dire straits.
Bunning handled the religious aspects of the story well, in a way that encouraged faith while discouraging fear and religious discord. It got you thinking about life after death and wondering what kind of world might be waiting for each of us somewhere out there in the universe.
The story's voice was unusual in its formal style.Read more ›
Delivered in the first person it leaves a lot for the reader to do to find empathy with the main character, Rodwell, something I never really managed myself. I also found problems making the other characters really come alive in my own mind but this really isn't an issue because the main strength of the work is in the ideas the story carries, and here I was roundly rewarded.
An apparently classic `journey to another world' tale, although on this occasion after Rodwell's own death by assassination, it forms framework for a number of intriguing ideas, the strongest and most novel, in my experience, the justification of God - nice twist that one and well worked out. Richard also expounds extensively on what he sees as inviolable tenets and principles applicable to both worlds and puts a nice `otherworld' slant on them but I found he tended to labour some of the ideas. It was sometimes a shame really for I felt brevity would have given his arguments the sharper edge they deserved.Read more ›
Another Space in Time is a refreshing and provocative look at our world and the world beyond, speculating existence, purpose, and God in thoughtful and meaningful ways. At times, Bunning's style seemed similar to that of Olaf Stapledon, one of my favorite speculative fiction authors. I recommend this book to fans of `50s pulp sci-fi and readers who enjoy a literary edge to their science fiction.
