When I was a kid there was this children's mystery show on Saturday morningscalled the Red Hand Gang ....(as in catching bad guys red-handed) But thats random free-association..... your story looks excellently about other things ..... yes, excellently ......

thanks guys, really appreciate the comments. mayhaps one day we'll get one polished up and sent off to bloomsbury or even simon and schuster for a grumbly audio narration GNT stylee . Yar!
I have returned yet again from Asking Mr. Foster and me and Wayne want to say ...




What a Brilliant story, I am loving it! and I recommend it to everyone!!!

That deserves a good publishing for sure! Yours make mine seem like Childs Play, ah ha ha, which reminds me, I'm going to put my ongoing story which actually about Playing, into the Time to Play thread (also aptly titled) that I already have, and just post updates to it from there. ; )


Keep this story coming, looking forward to MORE!

My pleasure! Its very impressive, not only how its written, but the creation part is sooo elaborate, you have to be deeply in your head with this one and deserve all the praise for it!


A major Stephen King influence shines right through your writing, that of which you only see of mine if I dragging him into my stories. :laugh:

Let's just say that, so far, in my snail's pace of reading, there's a certain calculation of days that took great attention to detail, working out the math, and telling a life story, as it fits, proof of time ..... That should be vague enough not to be a spoiler .....

hey maddie, wow , that's a great boost to my writing ego. i have been pestering folks on here for years, trying to get something worth reading out. looks like SK is rubbing off, without using his players anymore.



thanks again mate (your cheque is in the post)

And hey, let's face it, we are all influenced by SK, i see it in your work also. cheers for reading.

Travellin' Jack ... I can see the King in it .... but I can see other things too,
still the Poachers, so uniquely your spin on the low men in yellow coats, and a practical use for those coats to boot! I think that's a good hint of the story content without being too spoilery, but just in case ... a little nod to the Time Traveller's Wife, but as you've said, more a bit of Matrix in there at parts. The days without a Marty McFly Moment, the numbered days in the book, with its touchscreen counterpart hidden in back, adjusting itself to each change in the paradox (paradoxes?) Really brilliant, skipping a chapter to pull together the story quickly, returning to that when needed, knowing where you're going with it well enough to do that... that whole momentous switch of perspective it led to. The kid who knew his sci-fi, knew what was happening right away.. .so much, all in there .. so much looking forward to the rest of it ...

i've got a grin on my face, because you got it - you got all the diluted references - even the fishermans jackets ! bravo, its just little hat tips to events in my head that wormed into my must remember thoughts, (the sports almanac- the eager shop owner Happy to do business) i will get on it when i get back - promise.
