In 1914, the war to end all wars turns the worlds of John Patrick Scott, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H.G. Wells, Rebecca West and Harry Houdini upside down. Doyle goes back to ancient China in his hunt for that “red book” to help him write his Sherlock Holmes stories. Scott is hell-bent on finding out why his platoon sergeant has it out for him, and they both discover that during the time of Shakespeare every day is a witch-hunt in London. Is the ability to travel through time the ultimate escape from the horrific present, or do ghosts from the past come back to haunt those who dare to spin the Wheel of Karma?
The Time Traveler Professor, Book Two: A POCKETFUL OF LODESTONES, sequel to SILENT MERIDIAN, combines the surrealism of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse Five with the supernatural allure of Susanna Clarke’s Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell set during WWI on the Western Front.

A Note From the Publisher
Author suggests reading The Time Traveler Professor, Book One: Silent Meridian first to understand the characters and historical timeline.
• First Prize Winner of Chanticleer Review's Paranormal Fiction Awards.
A Pocketful of Lodestones is a worthy continuation of its award-winning predecessor in the Time Traveler Professor series, Silent Meridian. Even while serving in the trenches on the Great War’s Western Front for much of the book, music professor and ghost writer John Patrick Scott takes us on a well-written romp through time and space via past-life regression, astral projection, telepathy, and telekinesis. Along the way he interacts not only with Arthur Conan Doyle, H.G. Wells, Harry Houdini, and Carl Jung, but with such Elizabethan figures as John Dee and Francis Bacon. This paranormal adventure contains enough Sherlockian Easter eggs to delight the most devoted admirer of the Great Detective. And the story ends on a cliffhanger. Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that it opens the door to the eagerly anticipated Book Three of the series.
