Time Machines Repaired While-U-Wait
(A Spider Webb Novel)
“K. A. Bedford delivers by focusing less on the “wow” factor (and more) on the social-implications factor.” — The Harrow
“This is a gotta-read, with some thoughtful concepts to ponder.” — Pam Allen, ConNotations
“Bedford is funny in a crazed, Rudy Rucker kind of way. While Rucker writes of gonzo theorists, Bedford writes of the gonzo mechanics who keep the machines running.” — Fred Cleaver, Denver Post
Winner of the Australian Aurealis Award
In the future, Aloysius “Spider” Webb will journey to the End of Time.
For now, he must be content with repairing broken time machines, rebuilding his life and avoiding the lunatic antics of his boss, Dickhead McMahon.
Spider’s life is status quo until he discovers inside a broken second-hand time machine, the corpse of a brutally murdered woman from the future. The Department of Time and Space steps in to manage the situation — leaving Spider asking a lot of questions that only lead to more questions; unsettling evidence, brewing trouble, and the knowledge that Spider himself might be involved in an epic battle for control of time itself.
Will his knowing the future be a curse or a blessing? and will Spider Webb really find out how things turn out before they happen? With his new found knowledge, who can Spider trust?
One thing is certain: it will all happen before the End of Time!

Other books by K. A. Bedford:
“The local Western Australia ambiance provides a unique perspective that is quite consistent with the gonzo aspects of the story. Bedford has created a science-fiction novel that is sure to please most SF fans.” — D. Douglas Fratz, Sci-Fi
“The premise is not only is time travel common place, it’s treated like any other vacation spot. The equipment is cheap enough that one can often find good deals on time machines on Ebay. But the book doesn’t rest on one plot device but manages to pull off suspense mystery and intrigue. I am liking it despite myself!” — Paul, Reader
