Journey Through Folding-Space is an interesting anthology by Keith Radmall. This book was written in four parts: time travel, germ warfare, coronavirus, and COVID-19. The last two parts were inspired by the author's experience as he recovered from the coronavirus. Imagine you have a machine that can allow you to visit any part of history that you wish; where would you go? Iron age, ancient Rome, or somewhere in 2050? The first part of this book is about the story of a man who can travel to any point in time through time travel. He does this by sitting in his Orbital and setting the coordinates and the beginning of the time he wants to feature in.
One thing I find fascinating in this book is how the time traveler can explore a planet on which he wants to time travel by sending in an oddball to do a preliminary investigation for him. Also, this book gives procedures that can be tested for the treatment of some dire illnesses, like leukemia and malaria. It also gave out safety measures to be taken to stay safe from COVID-19. It chronicles the origin of the coronavirus, the different variants that have existed, the vaccines that have been produced to fight it, and the measures to be taken to stay safe from getting it.
The stories in this book are not connected. They are just the thoughts of the author in different spheres of life, ranging from the solar system to time travel and down to the COVID-19 pandemic. There was no motivation or suspense as I read this book; I don't know if other readers will see it otherwise. The aforementioned are the things I don't like about this book.
From this book, I learned that one can get to occupy a desired position in life by first programming their mind to be in that future state, even though they are not physically there yet. This book has no plot, characters, or setting. I found a few errors while reading through it, meaning the editors did a professional job with the editing. I also like that the author used simple sentences and words to write this book for easy comprehension. I did not relate to most of the time travel stories in this book; I feel the author could have found a way to connect the short stories here. Considering the above, I will be giving this book a rating of four out of five stars.
I would recommend this book to medical professionals or anyone interested in knowing about the origin and spread of the coronavirus. If you also have an interest in time travel, this book will be a good addition to your library.
