内容紹介

I made a time machine and I made a yesterday. And look what happened.

A multi-layered time-travel story that starts with Paxton delving into his past. He wants vengeance, and his time machine—which he barely understands—can give it to him. And all without the paradoxes. But there is less to Paxton’s world than he realises. Much less.

Pierce is Paxton’s mentor. Pierce is smart and charismatic and highly evolved, but he cannot help Paxton. And Pierce has bigger fish to fry.

Yesterday Makers is an exploration of reality, perception, and consciousness. There is sadness, and nostalgia, and yearning, hints of love and violence, and the urge to put things right.

A creative act—a weird collaboration between a woman and a machine—underpins everything. But everything has a cost.
So fire up the interface engines, listen to the machine, and enjoy this unique take on time travel. This is science fiction to make you think.

著者について

Then came a long stint in university-based medical video production (including two years at Stanford University in the early 80's). His first award was a CINE Golden Eagle in 1984 while working at Stanford; 39 more awards followed for the videos that he worked on-35 of those were for videos that he directed, including Gold at Worldfest Houston, and Silver at the British Medical Association. He has worked for many years as a scientific illustrator. In 2016 he began creating designer scarves. He has been writing science fiction for several years.

Book Review by Jeremy Poole

Yesterday Makers by Russell Knightly
I have to give this short and quite marvellous time travel tale a big 5 stars, it had me thinking and brought back my dwindling quest for answers.
The story is told from a variety of copies, of people, we never really know who is a copy and who is real, the characters come and go and some are very short lived.
I admit at times I was confused and had to re-read and re-read sections, but isn’t that what time travelling would be about, confusion and repeat. The main ‘evil’ character was a bit of a let-down and seemed to get her comeuppance too quickly, but this is a novella and as such I forgive this.
Overall, the small negatives were overcome by the big picture and view of time and us.
Give it a read, you’ll enjoy it and you’ll think.
5つ星のうち 4.0 A fun read, but perhaps a bit confusing. 2016/9/22

So many twists and turns I felt I needed to take notes! It was an enjoyable book, but towards the end there were so many things happening, it became hard to keep up. I thought the end was a little confusing as to what exactly was going on, where and when the final two characters ended up. Overall, though, if I didn't think too hard, it was a light-hearted time-travel romp.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Undefinable - definitely outside the usual mould 2016/12/11

After the first few chapters I stopped trying to understand the book and decided just to read it to the end to see how it would end, indeed if it would end. Tried and failed to keep track of who was real and who was imaginary, who had made whom, and which reality was real. But you do get to care about two of the characters.
The best way to describe this book is that it is like one of Einstein's Geistgedanken, thought exercises. It really is different from other time travel books. When I have read it through several times more, I will know better how to review it.
So my best recommendation is - download and read this book for yourself, don't take anybody else's review into consideration. Enjoy.

But, unfortunately I just could not get through the whole book. Made it about 84%… It was difficult to read and follow along and seemed to lose its intended direction about halfway through.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Amazing twists in a totally riveting story. 2017/1/28

Thrilled to know that the author's book Time Aerials wasn't a one-off gem of a read! He has a remarkable imagination and the intelligence and aptitude to transfer that into what is an enthralling, captivating read.

This was a thoroughly intriguing story playing around with time travel and bubble universes and by the end of the tale one finds oneself questioning the universe in which we now exist.

Unusual characters, intriguing premise, very thought provoking and an extremely satisfying, if somewhat unsettling, read.

This author delights in twisting one's thoughts into a pile of very tangled spaghetti. Or maybe that's just me!

Highly recommended!
