The Space Machine book cover

I wasn’t expecting the feelings of the Palma Map of Time novel, but up they came. With the latter chunk of the book not a surprise in retrospect.

Priest has been publishing novels since the 60’s. I’d love to sit down and have a chat with him, that sort of life experience is something that I, in my thirties, really can’t imagine.
This was really quite a clever work, poking much fun at the attitudes of a bygone era whilst taking some of the best science fiction of the 19th century for an extra spin.
