Thief Of Time

by Terry Pratchett

Everybody wants more time, which is why on Discworld only the experts can manage it -- the venerable Monks of History who store it and pump it from where it's wasted, like underwater (how much time does a codfish really need?), to places like cities, where busy denizens lament, "Oh where does the time go?"

While everyone always talks about slowing down, one young horologist is about to do the unthinkable. He's going to stop. Well, stop time that is, by building the world's first truly accurate clock. Which means esteemed History Monk Lu-Tze and his apprentice Lobsang Ludd have to put on some speed to stop the timepiece before it starts. For if the Perfect Clock starts ticking, Time -- as we know it -- will end. And then the trouble will really begin...

Behold The Man

by Michael Moorcock

Karl Glogauer is a disaffected modern professional casting about for meaning in a series of half-hearted relationships, a dead-end job, and a personal struggle. His questions of faith surrounding his father's run-of-the-mill Christianity and his mother's suppressed Judaism lead him to a bizarre obsession with the idea of the messiah. After the collapse of his latest affair and his introduction to a reclusive physics professor, Karl is given the opportunity to confront his obsession and take a journey that no man has taken before, and from which he knows he cannot return. Upon arriving in Palestine, A.D. 29, Glogauer finds that Jesus Christ is not the man that history and faith would like to believe, but that there is an opportunity for someone to change the course of history by making the ultimate sacrifice.

First published in 1969, Behold the Man broke through science fiction's genre boundaries to create a poignant reflection on faith, disillusion and self-sacrifice. This is the classic novel that established the career of perhaps contemporary science fiction’s most cerebral and innovative author.

There's a new time travel novel that is based upon Confederate President Jefferson Davis bribing Virginia to join the South by placing a ton of gold in the Bank of The Commonwealth in Richmond just before the Civil War began. That ton of gold disappeared and there is not a single $20 or $10 CSA gold coin in existence today. The Last Time Machine has Jessica Rothman - CEO of Rothcor Inc. sending six mercenaries from the year 2020 to the early Spring of 1861 to steal and bury the gold - to then be dug up in 2020 after they returned with the location. But an Artillery Captain - Daniel Hilton - accidentally energizes their retrieval disc and is snatched from his campfire to the time machine chamber - not full of smoke. He stumbles from the chamber believing he is in hell, and is immediately hit by a taser. Now we have six mercenaries trapped in 1861 and Daniel trapped in 2020 - truly fish-out-of-water. Then the story gets complicated, and at one point, Jessica gives Daniel a terrible ultimatum. "Your ticket back to your wife and son is to first be one of my lovers." Abraham Lincoln is thrown right in the middle of the action as we discover where the gold went.

This time travel goodie contains four of my favorite subjects: time travel, baseball, Irish-Americans, Mark Twain and other notable Americans of the 1870's. Loved the book and vivid descriptions of life in the late Nineteenth century
