The official patter:
"If you had one chance to change history...Where would you go? What would you do? Who would you kill?

In Time and Time Again, international best-selling author Ben Elton takes readers on a thrilling journey through early 20th-Century Europe.

It's the first of June 1914 and Hugh Stanton, ex-soldier and celebrated adventurer is quite literally the loneliest man on earth. No one he has ever known or loved has been born yet. Perhaps now they never will be.

Stanton knows that a great and terrible war is coming. A collective suicidal madness that will destroy European civilization and bring misery to millions in the century to come. He knows this because, for him, that century is already history.

Somehow he must change that history. He must prevent the war. A war that will begin with a single bullet. But can a single bullet truly corrupt an entire century? And, if so, could another single bullet save it?"

It's the week of Christmas, so few books come out... but that doesn't mean I didn't find a good one! Ben Elton seems to be taking his love of messing with history as immortalized in his TV show Blackadder and making it more serious and scholarly. So yes, I will totally be checking this out. Who knows, maybe Shakespeare ended up being the inventor of ballpoint pen?
