The Technicolor Time Machine Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Technicolor Time Machine

Very funny book, I laughed out loud all the way through.
A 60's film maker has little money to make a film, and decides to film a historical epic using a time machine which he has just acquired. Lots of chaotic fun ensues, especially with the crazy Norse berserker who is to play the leading role......(for some crazy reason Ottar turns up in a bill the galactic hero book also)

Very funny, especially when the director starts to lose his marbles under the stress towards the end.
