"TIME GUN" (Chrondisp 1)
The time is the 21st Century and the world is polarized into
two competing ideological power blocks. ASIABLOCK, formed from
the teeming millions of the Orient, has evolved a religion
where Communism has been refined and melded with "Tao" (The
Way). WESTBLOCK stands for free-enterprise and capitalism.
But a new technology of time travel has been discovered -
the Chronological Displacement or Chrondisp technique - and
both sides are using it to rummage through what the media call
the "Databank of History", to aid them in their struggle.
Captain Digby, army veteran of the recent limited but
vicious war ("The Pakistan Affair"), is recruited by the
WESTBLOCK Chrondisp Institute to be sent back into the time of
Napoleon to discover and bring back into the present a special
type of musket that was supposed to have been invented then,
and actually used in the Battle of Waterloo.
"TIME GUN" is a vigorous and eventful narrative of Digby's
strange adventures with a merciless Frenchman in the Paris of
1815 and at the Battle of Waterloo, with an intelligent
computer virus and Arab terrorists in 2015. And behind
everything the ruthlessly ambitious Dr Duluth.
"TIME GUN" is the first of the CHRONDISP series.
