A good story and a good start for a first time author.,
This review is from: Toward Yesterday (Kindle Edition)
In a world sinking into a morass of indifferent Fantasy, leavened only by the occasional Space Opera, it is a huge relief to read some 'proper' science fiction. You, know, fiction based on science.
Paul Jones' Towards Yesterday is unashamedly old school. The plot is well-paced and compelling, the science convincing, and the questions posed - both social and personal - leave the reader with plenty to ponder. I did take issue with the idea that Dirac's radio avoids the causal loop, based on the precept that it is information and not matter that is displaced in time, but that is a dispute with the theory, not the author.
I should point out that there is much more to this work; the characters are strongly drawn and the interplay of personality and circumstance compelling. I can unreservedly recommend you read Towards Yesterday if you prefer steak to hamburger.
