My first ever published, paid for work was a short story in 1973. I've written them on and off ever since. With any luck I'll write enough new ones up on this site that people will clamour for a printed anthology. Meanwhile, the first is a birthday present from me to anyone who wants to read it: it was written for June 15th, my birthday. Please do not assume that the central character in everything I write is me. For a start, I'm not as old as the character in the first story; nor am I an academic, let alone an exalted one. There's a lot of me in Time Traveller, though. I decided to put up the first part of the story even though it is not complete. It'd be a shame if it just died with me. 

Because I admire his work so much, I have also included a (very) short story by Jeff Johnson,
