    "An Intriguing Story" I like the chatty humorous style of this tale about time travel by a young boy. This is a subject that has always fascinated me. I'd give anything to go back and see the pyramids being built, or see real live dinosaurs. I'm sure this will capture the imagination of all who read it. Regards Anne

    "Re: An Intriguing Story" Thanks for the comments. The next book (I've only written a couple of chapters so far) goes back 300 million years to the carboniferous period and it should be called Officer Gentry and the Battle of Time
