    Rickshaw, New Mexico is a fast paced, hard to put down time travel story. I got hooked on the first chapter and was looking forward to reading the next chapters and find out why our hero George ended up in a one street Wild West town after having a rough night at work. The ending closes the story with a nice twist of fate. I wonder if there will be a sequel? I'd love to find out more about the mysterious time travelers who manipulate the outcome of the timelines. The scenes are well described an Rickshaw, New Mexico is a fast paced, hard to put down time travel story.

The scenes are well described and I could visualize the place well - nicely done!

    This is a satisfying tale that incorporates elements of Hollywood Westerns and cop thrillers into a well-told story of time displacement. Continuing on my recent theme of time travel, this is a curious story of a Marine sniper scout, George Foster, who wakes up after a disastrous bender (Jack Daniels and a pyramid of empty beer cans were involved) to find himself in just-post-Civil War New Mexico, hung over in a jail cell. Before I get too enthused, however, let me point out that the writing could This is a satisfying tale that incorporates elements of Hollywood Westerns and cop thrillers into a well-told story of time displacement. Continuing on my recent theme of time travel, this is a curious story of a Marine sniper scout, George Foster, who wakes up after a disastrous bender (Jack Daniels and a pyramid of empty beer cans were involved) to find himself in just-post-Civil War New Mexico, hung over in a jail cell. Before I get too enthused, however, let me point out that the writing could have used a few more tenses. de Silva uses only present and simple past to spin his yarn of changing times. Used only to tell the tale of the time traveler's movements, or the time police who brought him to this distant place and time, it might have been effective. Used without exception, even to tell what is done, was done and had been done, this lack of additional tenses makes the writing flat. Fortunately, the story overcomes the mono-tense presentation. Rickshaw reminded me of the Cross-Time Engineer series by Leo Frankowski. Like Conrad Stargard, George Foster is transported against his desire to a past time, by an organization that is revealed, but never explained. Like Stargard, Foster overcomes the lack of technology to become a leading light in his community. Unlike Stargard, however, Foster is not conveniently given all kinds of useful stuff to take back in time with him. He doesn't have much with him at all, just his clothes and wallet, thanks to the aforementioned bender. Oh, and his sniper skills, which translate well to a Sharps dual-trigger rifle. (Remember the Sharps rifle carried by Tom Selleck in "Quigley Down Under"? That's the one.) If you like Clint Eastwood movies about cops or cowboys, if you loved "The Magnificent Seven", forget the time-travel aspect. You'll enjoy this novel just as a Western with a steely-eyed man at its center. I did.

    If Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court was moved into the twenty-first century, it might seem a lot like Rickshaw New Mexico. Jon de Silva uses this premise in his well-written story of a down and out Las Vegas private investigator who gets drunk and wakes up in a cell. But the jail is located in Rickshaw, New Mexico and the year is 1886. Once you start reading this story, you won't put it down.
