827 – Somewhere, there is a book.

When I learned to read, I needed reading material. My sister’s book case served that need for a while. Famous Five mainly, but there was one other book as well. I can’t remember the title, I can’t remember the author. It was a science fiction.

I have been looking for this book for literally decades. I have spoken to second hand book people, people on science fiction websites. I have spent a bit of time searfching second hand book shops. It’s one of the reasons as to why I want to back to Hay-on-Wye. If I’m going to find it anywhere, I am sure it will be there.

The book may have had a dust jacket when new, but I never knew it with one. It was a green hardback.

The plot involved space travel, and the development of a Faster Than Light drive. The problem is that ships dissappear. A young man, a chemist becomes involved. At some point, he realises that the ships are dissappearing because as the ships approach the speed of light the aging process in people accelerates. He starts looking for a formula to counteract the acceleration, and at the last minute finds the formulae saving his and the crews life. Now, if you have ever read a book like that and can remember the details would you please let me know? Thank you.

Oh, and I still want to write a book.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
