I wrote this book originally
in 1993. I never got my act together to

have written them. There is something quite
different I hope you will be inspired to do.
Read the three little stories by all means
but that is not what this trilogy is about.
I want you to take part in your own
exploration of time and space. Use my three
simple adventures to start your own.
Two wonderful years working
as an arrogant management trainee in a city
centre deportment store. Had Destiny not
meddled and sent me down an entirely
different career path I could possibly have
become Britain's King Of The High Street.
It is said that your school
years are the happiest days of your life.

building and made a very rude gesture then began my
