Begin your journey now to a fantastic future, free from the rules of the world we believe to be real. Invoke the Spirit of Imagination as you visit the Time Shop and meet Archibald Ben Dillon, a master of time. Using the powers of mind, he can create the future, heal the past, and transform the very essence and nature of time itself. When a mysterious Lady approaches the Time Master with an urgent plea to save the Earth from destruction, he takes a vacation from his own lifetime and travels to the year 2255 searching for answers to bring back to his Home Time. Along the way, he discovers mental habits he needs to break, surrenders his identity and discovers who he has always been in time and out of time. He returns to Earth a new man. REVIEWS Written with a childlike imagination and a delightful adult twist, Tarra Light's The Time Doctor will appeal to all ages. The underlying metaphysical ideologies and unusual analogies kept me intrigued and laughing. -Sandra Moilanen, Environmental educator, Winston, Oregon What is "time?" We think we know, yet modern physics, remote viewing experiments, and paranormal narratives are challenging old beliefs at every turn. But let's not be too serious! With a quirky sense of the ridiculous, the author turns familiar phrases and habits of thinking on their heads, creating a lighthearted journey that challenges us, with warm humor, to open up to realities beyond what we take for granted. Recommended for all ages, with just one requirement: the ability to set aside expectations, trust the author, and enjoy a fine ride. - Christine C. Menefee, Librarian and book reviewer, Ashland, Oregon


A Country Doctor's Notebook

RRP $23.99

Brilliant stories which show the growth of a novelist's mind, and the raw material which fed the wild surrealism of Bulgakov's later fiction.

With the ink still wet on his diploma, the twenty-five-year-old Dr Mikhail Bulgakov was flung into the depths of rural Russia which, in 1916-17, was still largely unaffected by such novelties as the motor car, the telephone or electric light. How his alter-ego copes (or fails to cope) with the new and often appalling responsibilities of a lone doctor in a vast country practice - on the eve of Revolution - is described in Bulgakov's delightful blend of candid realism and imaginative exuberance.

About the Author

Mikhail Bulgakov (1891 - 1940) was born and educated in Kiev where he graduated as a doctor in 1916, but gave up the practice of medicine in 1920 to devote himself to literature. In 1925 he completed the satirical novella The Heart Of A Dog, which remained unpublished in the Soviet Union until 1987. This was one of the many defeats he was to suffer at the hands of his censors. By 1930 Bulgakov had become so frustrated by the political atmosphere and the suppression of his works that he wrote to Stalin begging to be allowed to emigrate if he was not to be given the opportunity to make his living as a writer in the USSR. Stalin telephoned him personally and offered to arrange a job for him at the Moscow Arts Theatre instead. In 1938, a year before contracting a fatal illness, he completed his prose masterpiece, The Master and Margarita. He died in 1940. In 1966-7, thanks to the persistance of his widow, the novel made a first, incomplete, appearance in Moskva, and in 1973 appeared in full.
