Note From The Author

I don't know whether you're interested in time travel, but I sure am. Always have been.

It may have started when I read The Time Machine by H.G. Wells.

This thing was published in 1895, so I guess I wasn't one of the early ones to the table.

I've read plenty of books and seen lots of movies too.

Some about going back in time. But for me the fascination was always about going into the future.

Not a whole lot. Just a few years to see what a lot of things we see today would look like.

But as attractive as it was, the idea—the concept of actually doing it —always seemed like a remote dream.

Until last September, that is.

That's when I was able to take a little trip—a short one, to be sure, but a trip nonetheless.

I know most scientists have concluded it's impossible. But I knew some guys who were working on a secret project for a major university and they were looking for a guinea pig to make the trip.

I told my wife and small daughter I was going fishing with some buddies, but I went to 2035 instead.

It sure wasn't what I expected. At first, everything looked pretty much the same as it does now, but it didn't take me long to find out there had been some very big changes.

Some pretty weird stuff happened to me while I was there. Some things I wish I didn't know about. And I learned a few things about my future self in the process.

It's too much to summarize here, but I wrote it all down and made a book out of it called Roebuck's Prize.

It's a pretty fast read, and you may find it interesting.
