If you had one chance to change history…

Where would you go? What would you do? Who would you kill?

I’m currently reading ‘Time and Time Again‘ by Ben Elton. I’m a huge fan of all of his books and I picked this one up recently, having heard great things about it. I haven’t finished it yet (but what I have read so far is absolutely brilliant and another example of Ben Elton’s excellent story telling), but I have been thoroughly fascinated by a concept within the book.

Similar to the idea in 11.22.63 by Stephen King, this book explores what would happen if you were to return to a significant event in history and change what happened. 11.22.63 focuses on the JFK assassination, and Time and Time Again turns its gaze to the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, and the start of World War I.

So I decided to ask around and see how people I know would answer these questions

I’ve been fascinated by all the responses! So I wanted to continue the concept. Tell me, where would you go in history and what would you do, see, change or experience?

Comment below or drop me an email at dmcain84@gmail.com. I can’t wait to hear your ideas!


Enough about me – tell me about YOU!


The king of all sci-fi time travel!

Today I am absolutely delighted to be hosting sci-fi and horror mastermind Stewart Bint as he releases his newly-edited version of Timeshaft. I LOVED this book – so gripping, so enthralling, so utterly mind-bending! If you like Doctor Who, the Time Machine and other time-travel stories, you are sure to love this too!



By the twenty-seventh century, mankind has finally mastered time travel—and is driving recklessly towards wiping itself out. The guerilla environmentalist group WorldSave, with its chief operative Ashday’s Child, uses the Timeshaft to correct mistakes of the past in an effort to extend the life of the planet.

But the enigmatic Ashday’s Child has his own destiny to accomplish, and will do whatever it takes within a complicated web of paradoxes to do so. While his destiny—and very existence—is challenged from the beginning to the end of time, he must collect the key players through the ages to create the very Timeshaft itself.

“Do our actions as time travellers change what would otherwise have happened, or is everything already laid down in a predetermined plan?” he asks. Stewart Bint’s Timeshaft is an expertly synchronized saga of time travel, the irresistible force of destiny, and the responsibility of mankind as rulers of the world.

Following the fortunes of two sets of time travellers, Timeshaft extends Stewart Bint’s popular novellas, Malfunction and Ashday’s Child (both published by Smashwords in 2012), linking the two completely unrelated storylines into a full-length novel.

Set in Australia, London and Scotland, along with an unknown geographical location called Thiecon, Timeshaft combines Ashday’s Child’s activities and hidden agenda, with an accident befalling the very first time journey by the fledgling Time Research And Exploration Project, rocking along to the past and future with paradoxes and twists galore.
