Out of Time: A Time Travel Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


In the 2150's, Dr. John Hawking, who is an almost exact clone of the famous 20th/21st century scientist, Stephen Hawking, discovers time is actually fluid; past, present, and future all exist at the same time. What he doesn't know, is if the current timeline can change when something is changed in the past. The US government wants him to find out. The theme being to make right what once went wrong.

Hawking's invention only works with a spaceship, so one is renamed the USS Albert Einstein, and he goes on time travel adventures with military members assigned to the ship. They go back to Wounded Knee in 1890, the Titanic in 1912, Anne Frank and her family in 1940, President Kennedy in 1963, and various NASA spacecraft from 1970 to 1986.

Unfortunately, a group of time travelers from 50 years in the future are determined to stop Hawking from changing the past. So, they steal the Einstein, causing them to end up in 1947 Roswell, which sets up a time loop until Hawking and his group break it by beginning their missions. When they end up back in their present time, they find things have changed, but not necessarily for the better. Will they return to the point in time where everything changed, or will they decide they've messed with history too much? Find out in this time travel novella.

High school english project

This reads like it was written by a nerdy 14 year old.


I love a good time travel story, in fact I'll buy just about anything with "time" in the title. And of all the books I have devoured, this ranks among the worst (I'm being too kind.) The plot sounds good, but the author lurches drunkenly from scene to scene with all the storytelling ability if a 12 year old. Amateurish writing, terrible grammar, and the misspellings increase as the book goes on -- obviously the editor had stopped reading like I eventually did :)

Simply horrid

I wish I could travel back in time and save my two bucks.
