A Stitch in Time


‘She was a good sleeper, rarely troubled by anything as confusing as a dream. But this one had a peculiar flavour. It’s just a pity that she didn’t remember it till much later.’

Tucked away in a remote corner of Wales, a research project into the furthest fringes of quantum physics is nearing completion. Unfortunately the scientists are playing with fire and are about to bring about the end of Time itself, and consequently the end of the universe as we know it.

The Gods (a coalition government these days) are unable to interfere under the terms and conditions of their own existence. They decide to send an envoy to the dream world, more commonly known as Astralia, to ask for help. The Astralians offer to send agents to our world, although when they arrive they usually have no recollection of why they were sent.

In the ‘real’ world, lead scientist Tom meets Lucy, the girl of his dreams. They fall in love, but do they really know who they are? As reality disintegrates, is there still time to save the universe? Is the answer always yes – and no? Written in a tongue-in-cheek style, A Stitch in Time explores the nature of reality and consciousness. This book will appeal to fans of fantasy novels, as well as those with a particular interest in quantum physics, contemporary arts and culture.

'A Stitch in Time'. A humorous fantasy which takes as a starting point the fact (?) that the Dream World is really Real. Given that, anything might happen, and does. Currently in preparation with Matador, but available as an ebook. See website for more info.

I’m a retired ancient – not quite as old as Grandfather Time yet but swaying alarmingly in the wind.

I’ve been, variously, a teacher, a researcher (political and otherwise), an amateur jockey, a musician, a software writer and a chocolatier (and probably a few more things I’ve forgotten).

I’m far too well educated for my own good, and I get bored easily.
