What if you could get your hands on one of these?

The heartbreaking story of reckless young love and a tricked out time machine that, in the wrong hands, could destroy the universe!



"K. A. Bedford does a really good job exploring the societal impact of a huge technology." - Paul Lappen

In a world where time machines are cheap and portable, ex-cop Aloysius 'Spider' Webb is eking out a living as a time machine repairman.

"Spider is described as "a good man in a bad situation," which I take to mean a schlemiel who labors to be a mensch." - Chris R. Paige, Book Nook

"One of science fiction's unexpected pleasures in recent years..." - Kirkus Reviews

Winner of the Australian Tin Duck Award.

"Well-written and fast-paced. Paradox Resolution should appeal to those who enjoy a detective story and the scientific types who like to try and unravel the quantum workings of time travel." - Ronald Hore, CM magazine

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Aloysius "Spider" Webb is a good man in a bad situation.

Aloysius "Spider" Webb fixes time machines for a living. He hates his job; he hates his life, and hates time travel even more. He's a hard working Australian bloke - a good man in a bad situation who is willing to do almost anything to regain his self-respect and the affection of his nearly ex-wife, Molly; a mad sculptress on her way to international fame and fortune.

Spider's life and his world are changing. After quitting the Western Australian Police Service, Spider studied to become a time machine repair mechanic, eking out a sparse living fixing broken down machines. But the repair business isn't what it used to be. Once, time machines were as big as cars; but now they're smaller and compact, portable, and cost too much to get fixed so it's easier for people to simply buy a new one. Times are tough and there is no end in sight.

Meanwhile, Spider's new boss at the Time Machines Repaired While-U-Wait franchise needs help: his secretly built, totally illegal, radically overclocked, hotrod time machine has been stolen, and Spider is the right man to get it back before it falls into the wrong hands, or worse inadvertently destroys the entire universe.

Spider's journey begins with a simple favor to help his almost ex-wife, Molly, and moves to the icy wastes of the far, far future.

Surprise and shock are the only constants in Spider's life; why should this job be any different?
