Product Description

Product Description

Mason Tyler, working in secret, and with the help of his attractive assistant Jane Munroe, has discovered a way to send a message to himself, which travels a few hours backward in time.

When Jane’s former lover, Mark Wright, learns of this breakthrough, he determines to prevent Mason from making his discovery public.

Why?

Because Mark believes time-messaging could cause the collapse of the World’s economic systems. But can he convince Mason to abandon the discovery of a lifetime...?

Or will events become more complicated than either one of them could have imagined...?

More About the Author

I didn't set out to be an author...

But when an opportunity presented itself to leave behind the world of commerce and grab a chance to do something creative, I took it.

I had always wanted to explore a particular science fiction idea, which I originally had when I was much younger. (I am still surprised that none of the great writers in the field had already tackled it.) It's the possibility of sending messages back in time using tachyons.

(This IS a possibility - recent events at CERN show that many serious scientists take the idea of particles moving backwards in time seriously. It does not contravene general relativity, or quantum mechanics - at least as far as I am aware at time of writing).

However, by the time I was ready to begin work on my project, I had also become concerned with some real-world problems. The ones we all face here on Earth - now, and in the near future.

After considerable thought and planning, I realised I could combine the serious scientific speculation about time-messaging with my concerns about mankind's future, by having the story examine the potential effect of time-messaging on our global social and political setup.

It seemed that I finally had a framework for my first novel!

However, soon after I started writing, I realised that the scope of this story would be too large to fit comfortably into just one novel. The result is, The Yesterday Trilogy. Three full-length novels which, together, tell one possible outcome of what might happen if we managed to send a message just a few hours backwards in time.

What would you do with such a capability?

What might you tell yourself in such a message?

Whether it's going to rain on you on your way to work today?

Winner of the 2.30?

Lottery numbers?

But what if everyone got to know about this capability? What then?

If you'd like to know what I imagined on the subject, during five years of research and writing, then I think you know what to do!

ENJOY!

Tim Beresford.

4.0 out of 5 stars Proper Skiffy 5 April 2013
By Stuart
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A welcome return of what I consider proper sci-fi - a really considered look at what the near future might hold. What if the technology existed to send a message back in time? What would the wider implications for society be?

The novel deals with some really big ideas, just like the Golden Age sci-fi of Clarke and Asimov but don't be put off - it's really accessible and clips along at a good pace.

If I really had to find a criticism it might be that the dialogue isn't great - it's like the way people write, rather than how they speak - but this didn't detract from the fascinating ideas and exciting plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly enjoyable sci fi 25 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Bought this as my first ever Kindle book to read on my new iPad and thoroughly enjoyed it. Set in Britain, well written and some great concepts. Now looking for number two in the trilogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing 12 Jan 2012
By Driz
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a refreshing and intellegent read from a new British Sci-Fi writer on the block. A great story, well told and so current! I understand this is the first of an already written trilogy. So I ask myself, can Beresford actually see into the future? It's as though he'd designed the book's premis well before the historic events recently achieved in the Hadron Collier at CERN! Again, a great story but not one for fans of little green men and lazer shoot-em-ups.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yesterday Today 10 Dec 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I don't usually read fiction as I prefer facts but with this recommended book the fiction came to me as if I were reading facts. The story, which is so topical, read with such clarity on persons and places that it felt I was now in the real world.

The author has set a steady pace where you are in no doubt about the situation you are in. Even the cerebral piece on what a tachyon is and what it can do leaves the reader accomplished.

My early career was all about communications which I have used extensively throughout my working life. This well written book is about communications but of Tomorrow.

I look forward to reading the next book of the trilogy to see how the author's imagination can take me further into the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable trilogy 24 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bought and read all the three books one after the other and enjoyed the tale a lot.
All revolves around sending messages to yourself and actually receiving them in the past.
It sound quite confusing but it is explained quite well in the first book.

I found the book an entertaining easy read. The story and characters develop quickly which make it hard to put down. The ending comes too soon, looking forward to next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very plausible plot 24 Nov 2011
By Jaydax
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very enjoyable book which in view of recent discoveries becomes very believable. For Tachyon read neutrino. It seems they can travel faster than light and if that's so then they will possibly travel back in time.

The main characters are well thought out although believing a banker wouldn't... Well I'll leave you to find out about that.

I for one will look forward to the next installment in the trilogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Call me yesterday review 18 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
A hard to put down Sci Fi based on the here and now. A twist and a commentary - several twists in fact, which recent economic and scientific events endorse. It is a book of clear, realistic and detailed descriptive writing and characterisation,(well, there has to be one clear sighted banker in the world eh?). I eagerly await the rest of the trilogy. I can see Hollywood being tempted by this as well. What a good read, more please!

I am a fan of creditable sci-fi stories and this fits the bill as it is based on known, albeit relatively new scientific concepts, and has therefore a very plausible plot. Read more
