Ian Cattell is a software developer who wanted a change from staring blankly at a computer screen all day. So he decided to write a book.

Yeah, I know…

Over the next six months he learned that there are many advantages to writing a book compared to writing software; the main one being that he doesn’t have to re-write it whenever Microsoft decides it’s ‘time’.

Ian Cattell books
The Long Lost Future and The Impossible Past

The Long Lost Future is his debut novel. It’s a semi-dystopian satirical sci-fi time-travel adventure romance, if you can imagine such a thing.

The sequel, The Impossible Past, is a slightly less but still quite dystopian alien time-travel adventure set in the deep past, the far future, and an artificial parallel universe simultaneously. Yes, it is a bit confusing.

Ian is currently working on recording the audiobook versions, which, Ian being Ian, means first writing a piece of software to make it easier for him.
