Tagged: Author

(1943-    ) US author whose sf novel, Time on my Hands (1997), carries its protagonist back to 1938 Hollywood (see California; Time Travel) with the mission to do anything in his power that will prevent Ronald Reagan from eventually becoming President of the United States; unfortunately for his mission (though fortunately for Reagan, who turns out to be highly likeable), the protagonist's journeys back and forth through time have the effect of destabilizing any attempt to bring off any sustained plan.
