Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This is the first of a "couplet" of books that tell the story of Rodwell Richards time on the planet Axa-Goranas. Both can be read and enjoyed independently of the other. The books are first and foremost  near future and parallel time adventure fiction, which also dabble in every-man "meaning of life philosophy, the psychology of estrangement, moral degradation, and religious reappraisal resulting from fundamental change of circumstance. The second book is scheduled for publishing in the winter of 2011-2012. 
The Earth Trash Terminators look to have such a strong grip on the State of Albion that they are sure to destroy Rodwell. Will he survive into the chapters of "Another Space in Time, Returns"? We shall see.

From the Back Cover

The story of Rodwell Richard's death and "rebirth" into a parallel dimension, opened my mind to questions about humanity's place in the multiverse of space. This story's author has faithfully recorded for me many of the vivid memories I "inherited", along with Rodwell's donated heart. My eyes have long failed me, but Rodwell's story never dims. As my time here draws to a close, I feel that I owe it to this world to leave a record of Rodwell's adventure for all to read. One won't get a glimpse of Heaven, nor thankfully Hell, though one might gain some hope of a long road yet to be travelled when faithful hearts stop beating. Of course humans are just humans, even with the gift of "rebirth": imperfect souls one and all. We see into a world as corrupted and divided as our own, as we share Rodwell's struggle to overome terrorists, and police who have him labelled with murder. The struggles of a migrant across space and time, have a resonance with the fears of any new citizen immersed in an unfamiliar culture. 
Enjoy this story as a fairy-tale, speculative fiction, or whatever you choose. As is yours, my mind is my only truth.

This book was so different to any other SF I've read, and it gripped me from the start. The main character's utter confusion at finding himself naked in a different world was believable and I felt empathy.
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.

I highly recommend this novel to anyone who likes to question philosophical concepts. The author is an intelligent gentleman who knows how to give us food for thought in many ways. I love the details he weaves of a planet that may just exist between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, but is probably in a different dimension where the sun just switches off at night. I also liked the love story that was intertwined in the writing that is without any blemishes or imperfections. The author makes us wonder about life after death. Another Space in Time is a very refreshing and interesting science fiction novel. I hope you read it when you get a chance and learn about the main character's rebirth.

Another Space in Time tells the story of Rodwell Richards, a murdered man who finds himself alive and well in an alternate universe. As he adjusts to his new surroundings, he gets caught up in a complex web of intrigue, kidnapping, and murder. Will Richards' second life end as violently as his first?

The book reminds me of Philip Jose Farmer's Riverworld because of the afterlife aspect, Pratchett's Discworld for the world building, and The Fugitive due to the tone once the story gets into gear.

The book is exceedingly English, which works in its favor. The author created a world highly influenced by our own, making it both familiar and alien. The new reality is fantastic in many aspects, but they feel downplayed in favor of character moments and cups of tea.

The book has a few quirks that could win or lose a reader. It's written in first-person present, and has rather long blocks of dialogue as the characters discuss life, the universe, and everything. The first section of the novel is heavily dedicated to Richards' induction into a new life and his attempt to cope with it, so it takes a while for the meat of the story to really get going. And just a heads up, the book deals with some touchy subjects in sci-fi, like agnosticism, theistic evolution, and genetic memory. The author, Richard Bunning, has a strong voice, and I was quite engaged as I read the thoughts of his main character dealing with an increasingly desperate situation.

I found Another Space in Time to be an interesting mashup of philosophical meandering and violent confrontations, making for a unique reading experience. It's an unusual book, and that's a good thing.

Richard Bunning describes his novel as speculative fiction, rather than fantasy or science fiction, and with him I must agree. Although fantasy and sci/fi take place in imaginary worlds and often have sociopolitical themes, the focus of speculative fiction, from my understanding, is to pose and answer "what if?" questions.

Questions considered in Another Space In Time include, what if
1. organ donor recipients retain a connection with their donors?
2. when you die, you are transported to another world?
3. people on worlds that receive recycled souls from earth resent the wave of immigrants?
4. people had more evidence that their consciousnesses did not end with death?
5. a world existed whose sun was a pulsar?
6. a world existed where the population could learn from mistakes made on Earth?
7. you were an immigrant and the native people could read your thoughts?

--and there are others.

Mr. Bunning has worked out answers and played with other ideas in his novel. To keep it interesting and quicken the pace, he added a crime mystery. To satisfy romance readers, he wove in a love story. The result is a novel that fulfills the need for a plot, conflict, characters, arcs, etc. while also serving as a vehicle for exploring aspects of "every-man philosophy".

The story took awhile to draw me in. Partly, the writing style is formal and wordy. In some respects, the beginning felt like stepping into a boat at the dock where the boat rocks quite a lot until you settle and pick up the oars. At that point, the Rodwell character, from whose POV the bulk of the story is told, establishes himself as somewhat timid, gentlemanly, and quaint. Funny, even.
