K. A. Bedford’s newest science fiction novel Time Machines Repaired While-U-Wait has been nominated for Australia’s Aurealis Award. Bedford celebrated his newest science fiction novel earlier this fall with appearances at the World Science Fiction Convention in Denver Colorado and was the Guest of Honor at ConVersion in Calgary Alberta. Time Machines Repaired While-U-Wait is unlike his other three releases: Orbital Burn, Eclipse, and Hydrogen Steel.
Time Machines Repaired While-U-Wait is a look at time travel and all of its implications. In the future, Aloysius "Spider" Webb will journey to the End of Time to change the past… or so he hopes. 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.
The Aurealis Awards were established in 1995 by Chimaera Publications, the publishers of Aurealis Magazine, to recognize the achievements of Australian science fiction, fantasy and horror writers. Winners will be announced at the Aurealis Awards ceremony at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts in Brisbane on Saturday 24th January 2009.
