First of all, I love John David Krygelski's style of writing; this is not the first book I've read by this author and it will not be the last. It's well written, entertaining and thought provoking; this book does not disappoint at all.
This novel is an interesting mix of Science Fiction and fact, woven with strands of romance and thriller, and like any book in this genre it is necessary to suspend your belief of reality and go along with the imaginary elements for the duration of it. The core element of the story is time travel and the impact and implications it has on those who undertake it. The futuristic technology allows one man to attempt to change his life by traveling back in time to change a decision that he made some thirty years previously, and later regretted. However, as the improbable is made possible by time travel, like a ripple spreading across a pond, the changes he makes touch the lives of many other people. The impact of these changes allows the reader to ponder philosophy, and speculate about whether time travel is right or wrong, and question themselves about whether we should we be able to change history? After all, if everyone attempted to change the mistakes of their past, history would be in a constant state of flux.
I don't want to say more lest I give too many spoilers ~ but if you read it I am sure you will enjoy it. I consider it 5 star. A super read.

What I love most about this book is how elements of fact and science are woven in with the fiction. I was engrossed by the story and the characters, but there was just enough truth in the story that I felt something like this really could happen. There are a lot of surprises in the book which were fun for me because it kept me reevaluating what I thought was going to happen next. The ending is fantastic, too! Krygelski's other books that I've read ("The Harvest" and "The Aegis Solution") are fantastic reads, as well!

At first I enjoyed this well written tale. However, as it soon descended into the private life of the "bad guy" it got a bit too much. Necromania is not a topic anyone wants to read about, let alone those under the age of consent. It distorts a growing child's sense of self, considering that their sexual urgings have yet been formed. As such it is not a topic for most. Although it is a minor part of the tale, and could have easily have been left out, the author chose to include it much to my regret. It ruined an otherwise excellent piece of work. The author needed an editor and clearly did not find one up to the task at hand.
The author's name? John David Krygelski. Apparently he resides in Tuscon, Arizona, which goes a long way to explaining his knowledge of the badlands countryside.

A Stitch in Time... 14 Dec. 2010
By Michael Foudy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What is the biggest mistake you ever made in your life? What if you could go back in time from 30 years in the future and warn yourself not to make that mistake? Would you? Would the warning work? Or is the error fated to ruin your life?

Assuming you did go back what about the law of unintended consequences and it's impact on your current life today? When you came back, assuming you could even get back, would you recognize the current time upon your return?

These are a few of the questions author John Krygelski explores in this engaging, entertaing and thought provoking book. And, I've only skimmed the surface.

Although the book deals with dense scientific theory of time and quantum mechanics, it does so in an easy to read, engaging and compelling style. Although I admit to being a science fiction fan, I was so hooked by this book that I took off from work early on a Friday to spend date night with "Time Courser." Now, that is high praise or I'm a geek. Or perhaps both are true statements;-)

But "Time Curser" isn't a just a science fiction book. It's a book about family. It's a thriller. It's a crime mystery. It's a romance. It's speculative science. It's a UFO book. It's all of the above and yet it's an easy read. I really enjoyed it and I encourage you to give it a shot if you are interested in any of those styles.

Time Cursor is worth reading.....more than once! 13 Jan. 2012
By Matt D. Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Every now and then an author comes along that has profound ideas that go beyond just words on a page. This is the case with John Krygelski and his book Time Cursor. Like his previous book, The Harvest, Mr Krygelski blends modern science fiction with mind bending philosophy. After you read this book you will believe time travel is possible and you will believe that your every day actions could have earth shattering implications in the future. The book is fast paced. It is exciting. It is eerie. It is suspenseful. What makes Time Cursor worth reading is that Mr Krygelski doesn't throw all his cards on the table. He doesn't just say, "this is what it's about and this is what's happening." He lures you in with cliffhanger after cliffhanger. Every chapter ends like an episode of Lost. The reader is left in disbelief still wondering what will happen next. And its okay to tell your son you can't make it to his high school graduation. Tell your fiance you'll be missing the wedding tomorrow because the next chapter of this book simply cannot wait!!!! This book is entertaining. There is no questioning that. It is pure escapism. But with it holds true to life ramifications. What if you could change the past? What if you could fix that ONE mistake? Everyone wishes they could do that and that is what makes these characters so real and that is what makes this story so easy to relate to. John Krygelski is a master of his craft. Your life will not be complete unless you read Time Cursor and The Harvest. I can assure you of that. Get these books! Read them! Tell your friends! They will NOT be disappointed.

Rollicking good Ride er uh.. Read 13 Jan. 2012
By Vener8ed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I thoroughly enjoyed Time Cursor. Time travel is one of my favorite themes and I've read dozens of time travel stories and novels, many of them by some of the best known authors. Time Cursor is among my favorites. It is a really enjoyable read. I have tried to write them myself so I know that it isn't easy to write a time travel story that is fresh and engaging given the plethora of stories out there but Mr. Krygelski pulled it off. I tip my cap to him. I enjoyed the writing style as well. It reminds me a little of Heinlein.

One thing that impressed me was that he was able to include some believable explanations of the science and theories behind the invention without getting bogged down in technicalities. He successfully merged plot development and character development into the dialogue about how time travel would work. And speaking of dialogue, I think his was very realistic and natural with a good flow that was broken up nicely by the action of the story.

I really like the fact that he kept the story about the characters, their emotions, and their experiences. I think that's an important thing that some SF authors neglect when they fall in love with the premise. His characters are complex, somewhat quirky and well developed. I think character driven stories like this tend to be the best. The plot is interesting and complicated but not too complicated. There are enough twists and turns that it kept my attention throughout the entire read. It wasn't too predictable either, or too serious. It made me laugh several times.

I met Mr. Krygelski at a book signing and one topic we discussed was endings. With Time Cursor, he said that he had wrapped everything up at the end and provided satisfying closure so I was expecting it. However, I began to be doubtful as the predicaments seemed to get more insurmountable by the page. But, again, he pulled it off. I appreciate how he tied up all the loose ends. That's something I miss in a lot of the artsy stories written lately. I've never been a fan of open, chaotic or anticlimactic endings. (Gibson's Pattern Recognition comes to mind.) While it may be that a story is "about the journey and not about the destination," I don't think a story's destination should be vague or nebulous. It shouldn't end with everything left hanging. Sometimes I feel like an author just got tired of writing and called it the end. A non-ending can mar an otherwise decent story. Mr. Krygelski's approach is more my style.

All in all, I think Time Cursor is well written and well worth reading.

Sci Fi and Great Suspense! 7 Jan. 2012
By Justme - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Having read Krygelski's first book, The Harvest, I was anxious to see what his second would be like. I had enjoyed the thought provoking nature and all the twists of his first. When I picked up the Time Cursor and bunches of scientific theory started coming at me though, I thought I would get buried. Instead, I found myself getting swept along in the fever of "well, yeah maybe that could work," and "maybe it did happen that way," and "I never thought about that before, but it could have been."

I got so caught up in the story that I did not want to put it down! Luckily for me, I didn't have to. I read it in one day! I took breaks to eat and to do other necessary things, but that was it! This story revolves around a man who travels back in time to stop himself from marrying a woman. It would be a neat thing to be able to go back in the past and help yourself. Of course there are always consequences.

There are so many twists and curves in this story--you almost need a score card to keep up! You think you have it sealed up nice and neat, then bam--you don't. This is one book that would make an excellent Sci Fi action movie!! I have to reread it to see if I missed some subtle hints in the first read. The best advice I can give you is not to read this before bed if you need to get right to sleep. You will want to know what happens next!! Enjoy the ride!!

A Fantastic Read!!! 14 Jan. 2012
By Lou Kidd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
After reading the Harvest, I started Time Cursor. Again it was one of those books that I could not put down . The characters are engaging and as with any good book you feel right along with them. I am not very good at writing myself but I do love his writing and his way of making a person think. So I will read anything he writes and tell anyone who I talk to who loves to read, these books are well worth reading. You won't want to put it down til you find out how it ends!!!
