Imagine you’ve just discovered you’re the most significant person who’s ever lived.
You saved the world from an alien invasion. If it wasn’t for you, everyone would be dead.
Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?
That’s exactly what happens to Geoffrey Stamp, but there’s just one problem – he can’t tell anyone. You see, Geoffrey is a Time Rep – a tour guide for the 21st Century, meeting people from the future who travel back in time for their vacation. Everything he does needs to be kept a secret from the people in his own time, otherwise he risks changing the course of history.
And that caused enough trouble in the last book.
But now a new company called Continuum is offering holidays to the past, and they allow people to go back and change whatever they like. For Geoffrey, this sounds like a dream come true, until a future version of himself appears out of nowhere with no memory, a bullet in his back, and a Continuum business card in his pocket. Geoffrey soon finds himself in a race to solve his own attempted murder, but begins to wonder if his investigation is the very thing that nearly got him killed.
What is the truth behind Continuum, and after saving the planet, why would anyone want him dead?
Imagine you’ve just been told you’re the most insignificant person who’s ever lived.
Somebody less important to the world than certain types of mushroom.
Not very nice, is it?
Well that’s exactly what happens to Geoffrey Stamp when a man from the year 3050 asks him to become a “Time Rep” – a tourist guide for the 21st Century, meeting people from the future who travel through time for their vacation. You see, Time Reps need to be insignificant. Otherwise, when you go back in time and interfere with their destiny, the space-time continuum has a bit of a fit.
And we wouldn’t want that.
But when Geoffrey uncovers a conspiracy to change the course of history, he is sent on a mind-bending adventure through time and space involving an imaginary lake, a talking seagull, dinosaurs, aliens, the Great Fire of London, and the discovery that he might not be as insignificant as people thought…
NOTE TO SELF
Richard Henley’s day began with a visit from a stranger and an invitation to dinner.
It ended with him receiving a note in his own handwriting warning that someone was trying to kill him – a note he had no memory of writing.
What followed would push Richard’s grip on reality to the limit, forcing him to confront the inexplicable, question his past, and trust his fate to an unknown ally…
Note to Self takes Richard on a journey to places he never knew existed, explores the role of technology in the modern world, and asks whether the choices we are making are really our own.
