The citizens of New Pompeii hesitate to use the time-altering Novus Particles device, but when outsiders offer to help, Nick Houghton, discovering his name on an ancient artifact from the real Pompeii, becomes suspicious that someone from the future is controlling the device.
Empire of Time Paperback edition by Daniel Godfrey
Daniel Godfrey has had several short stories published, including in My Weekly and Writers' Forum, and is a dedicated reader of SF and historical fiction. He studied geography at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and gained an MSc from Leeds in transport planning. He lives in Derbyshire.
Some time in the near future, energy giant NovusPart has developed technology to transport people from the past to the present day, and they have just moved the lost population of Pompeii to a replica city. Historian Nick Houghton is brought in to study the Romans, but he soon realises that NovusPart are underestimating their captives.
For fifteen years, the Romans of New Pompeii have kept the outside world at bay with the threat of using the Novus Particles device to alter time. Yet Decimus Horatius Pullus-once Nick Houghton-knows the real reason the Romans don't use the device for their own ends: they can't make it work without grisly consequences.
A survey of the music of the postwar period, exploring a diversity of music from an international perspective. Integrating music theory and music history, this book concentrates on: pitch logic; process; texture; sound colour; time; performance ritual; parody/historicity; notation; and technology.
