Unfinished Musical

This is the lyrical text of a musical that I am writing. I need to partner with a composer. Maybe the words will bring you joy.The Unfinished Musical is just that, an unfinished musical. It started off as a light comedy about a worker at an amusement park and somehow evolved into a blues-gospel hybrid. Basically its about one man's discovery of faith and that life isn't as bad as he thinks it is.Or not. I don't know, I leave it up to the reader to form your own opinion about what it all means.

How to Build a Time Machine

Inspired at an impressionable age by the work of science fiction writers H.G.Wells and Arthur C Clarke, Paul Davies has thought long and hard about ways to travel in time. Here, the best-selling popular science writer finally reveals how it can be done - without breaking the laws of physics and without causing any earth-shattering paradoxes. Since time is money, time travel is a costly business. But with the help of a handy black hole, or better a wormhole, and a bit of luck, Davies's guide illustrates how this new mode of travel could yet be a viable option.
