Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Ed Chalmers, history professor, had a real problem in his classes: he kept blurting out events that hadn't happened yet.

FYI, for those who want more from HBP, he passed away in 1964.


Barbara L. Fitzgerald

Excellent Sci-fi story that needs to be continued. HBP could turn this into a multi-volumn collection. Maybe eventually into video. Keep writing!


Rochelle Rober

Great story....can't wait to know what will happen next!


Indranie Dabideen

Why two top science-ficton editors would reject this story is beyond me. The story was very interesting and should be continued.


brent dawson

only red the first pages and i dont want to stop


zafar

I wish it continued.


Deepika

This is a good book indeed. I'm sure there should be a sequel to it....


S.A.

Good makings of a novel. Please keep writing!


Holls

Brilliant read though far too short - it definitely leaves you wanting more.


Mark

A good book, I agree with the first comment and would like to read any that fallow this one.


Beth

Awesome read. I would love to read a sequel.
