About Traveller Probo

Would you survive if sent one-thousand years into the past?

Development of the Transporter saw highly trained researchers, called Travellers, successfully sent one-thousand years back in time to early medieval Saxon England.

Traveller Missions now mean enormous national prestige and the recovery of valuable lost artefacts and knowledge, so nations vie for the use of the Transporter and more daring Traveller missions are planned.

As the study of History becomes hotly contested, politics and power soon come into play.

To study lost peoples and civilizations, Special Forces researchers have to be even better trained, better equipped, and prepared to put their lives on the line.

While Michael Hunter continues to build a life in Saxon England, the tragically injured Tony Osborne finds his resurgence in a mission to ancient Turkey, and Professor Adrian Taylor seeks to better outmaneuver his contentious colleagues.

From the misty shores of New Zealand to the shining splendor of the ancient Byzantine Empire, it is soon learned that sending modern researchers into the past is not without its rewards, and pitfalls.

More about writing the Traveller Series

When we examine the history of humanity one thousand years in the past we find:

Over a surprisingly wide segment of the globe, any strangers risked becoming victims of cannibalism or ritual sacrifice. The Pacific, the Americas, Africa, and indeed many locations would be just too dangerous for a 21st Century researcher to visit.

Traveller – Probo‘ covers more about the main characters from Traveller. How will they fare? What is their fate?

But where normally in a historical fiction, you only have one time period painted for you, the author has undertaken the burdening task of weaving a story that contains several different civilisations history, Saxon, Maori, Byzantine and Slovak Rus. Although all in the same period of time the differences between them… Read more

To write something like this genre the author must be well informed and to tie up loose ends he must be have a logical explanation to the readers’ questions. For me I feel every loose ends was well managed and there was nothing in this 500 page read which was not logical. Read more
