Bruce Macfarlane is a retired Health Physicist who lives with his wife on the south coast of England, just a few minutes’ walk from the sea.

He is the author of the SciFi Time Travel Diaries of James Urquhart and Elizabeth Bicester.

When he’s not researching King Arthur, he’s out walking on the South Downs with his wife and his friends trying to remember all the names of the flowers and mushrooms his wife has identified.

If it’s raining he can be found sometimes in his “shed” as his wife calls it, trying to master new jazz chords.

A life of writing scientific reports and reading early science fiction, especially the genre of time travel such as the works of Anderson, Simak and Wells encouraged him to start writing his own novels about the adventures of a modern man and a Victorian lady whom he met at a cricket match in 1873;

His stories have been described as “Tom Holt meets P.G. Wodehouse meets Philip K. Dick meets Fortean Times.”

An introduction on how he wrote and developed the stories can be found here.
