About the Book

This fourth sequel to the Book in the Loft addresses the many questions of time travel―whether one can travel to the past or the future without becoming entangled in paradoxes. Neil and Elena MacBruce and the crew of Explorer, along with Surion Captain Torn, find themselves in a predicament that forces them to not only answer the questions, but to experience them. Time travelers from the future invade the Surions' world and take what is not theirs. Explorer's Captain Jon Varkon decides to find the means to track them down, but the current technology within the Inner and Outer Circle of Planets is of no help. Enlisting the aid of the Dropa and an alien race of time travelers called "Torellians," he and his crew set out to retake what was stolen, not sure if they will succeed in their mission or be caught and lost in one or more of time’s paradoxes.

About the Author

After Captain Varkon and the others introduced themselves, he asked Commander Kim, “What did your scanners pick up within this hollow that gave you the impression it might have been formed by a ship?” “Nothing,” Commander Kim said. “That is it wasn’t what was inside, but what wasn’t inside. It was only the shape of the hollow that gave us that impression. And that’s what’s strange, as you’ll see shortly. Our scanners gave us a clear outline of the area but showed nothing within the entire empty space, not even what you would expect, such as rock formations, caves, dried up riverbeds or other natural underground formations. There was nothing but empty space. But when we began our investigation, which we started only a short while before all of you arrived here, the nothing wasn’t entirely the nothing we thought it was.” “Your scanners didn’t pick up anything, but you’re saying there’s something there?” Commander Rinlar said from behind Captain Varkon. “That’s correct,” Torn said. “What Kim and Farell reported they uncovered is something we must see for ourselves. And after we see it, and review their findings, I suggest we have a meeting as to whether or not we should continue our investigation or leave it alone.” “Sounds ominous,” Captain Varkon said. “So let’s see what we need to see.” Commanders Farell and Kim led the group toward the back of the passage, asking two crewmembers who were waiting in the shadows to accompany them. When they approached what looked like a blank dirt wall with a large opening in the middle of it, Commander Farell stopped. “This is it,” he said. “Ensign Sondar, hand me that light projector.” “Aye, sir,” Ensign Sondar said. He handed the projector to Commander Farell, and then stood alongside the wall. “Now,” Commander Farell said, “I’ll shine this light through what appears to be a solid, transparent window. Once you have seen what’s inside, I’ll show you how we discovered it.”
