It is a short-to medium length novel - the original Blushing Books paperback edition had 192 pages - which in roughly equal parts is a comedy science fiction story about a couple who get lost in time, and a work of spanking erotica.
April Hill claims to have "found this peculiar document in a writing desk I purchased for just a few dollars in a run-down junk shop in London."
Ahem. She bought something in a junk shop in London and refers to the purchase as if had been made using dollars?
Possible this indicates that the book was written for the US market, but to be honest it also gives you a pretty fair idea of how closely the author attempts, or rather doesn't, to make the details of the various times and places in the story feel authentic and accurate.
The main text of the story was supposedly written in August 1909 by Abigail, the young niece of H.G. Wells. It suggests that the great novelist had managed after much effort to build for real a working prototype of the Time Machine from his eponymous novel.
Abigail and her American husband, Edward, activate the Time Machine and find themselves on a journey through various periods of Earth's history and future, from King Arthur's court to Ancient Rome, from the Wild West to the year 3599 AD. During each of those periods Abigail demonstrates a remarkable facility for getting herself into all sorts of trouble.Read more ›
Right idea, wrong book.
But its author? This book honours its the Wells predecessor, but takes, what I might call, rather full advantage of the possibilities the great man missed. Or chose not to include. Jeff Wayne hasn’t produced his version of this either. Or at least not yet! Come on Jeff! Consider the percussion you could use; The special effects; The stage show and world tour!
But HGW appears … the old rascal. Who knew?
The story is fast and sore and very entertaining. As always in my view, it is the tone that April Hill gets so right. What else do you need to know? A keeper.
