Paradox Resolution by K A Bedford is published in August by Edge ($14.95)
“Aloysius ‘Spider’ Webb fixes time machines for a living. He hates his job; he hates his life, and hates time travel even more. He simply wants to get on with his life. 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.
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 over-clocked, 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.”
