Here's a science fiction novel that is based on Glastonbury with scenes in Weston-S-Mare, and explores alien communication techniques while questioning the nature of time on Earth.

Author Geoff Nelder, has had a short science fiction novel, Exit, Pursued by a Bee, published recently by Double Dragon Publishing Inc. Initially as an ebook - but it will come out as a paperback later.

Exit, Pursued by a Bee, smashes the accepted wisdom that time passes smoothly. Perhaps Earth time is kept continuous by something that absorbs time decoherences - not for much longer. The Earth orbits the sun at 18 miles per second. If the mountain in front of you is thrown back a second, it slips 18 miles. Imagine such time-quakes happening all over the world.

As time-quakes cause chaos, a Mars mission is diverted to chase the departing time absorbing spheres. Arguing against hawkish military generals on Earth, the man and woman crew discover a means to communicate with the spheres, but will they listen and return to Earth?

Geoff Nelder, having been a teacher, is now a UK-based freelance editor, co-editor of Escape Velocity magazine.
