And I would like to be the second one.
Ronald Mallet already has a blueprint for a time machine and he is not in Hollywood. You can't get any further from Hollywood than Connecticut.
For one I need to read his book "The Time Traveller." He was just 10 when his father died. Devastated, he found solace in science fiction of HG Wells, believing that if he could build a time machine, he could go back into the past, warn his father and save his life.
Noble intention bordered on impossibility and Hollywood melodrama. Or so I thought.
Only that he is a professor of theoretical physics. You need to know your physics inside out to build a time machine that I can only dream of.
And off to Kinokuniya this weekend. Will let you know of what I think of the book.
My hope has been raised.

I am a bit disappointed with Kino for not carrying the book (yet may be). I thought they would have everything that has been published. But they are willing to special order it for me as a consolation.
