The Time Traveller by Ronald Mallet
The story of an American Professor of Theoretical Physics, who started life in the Bronx and by hard work went on to become a tenured professor. As a result of his father’s death when he was ten, Ron Mallet started a life long quest to achieve time travel. In order to do this he became an expert on Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity, and may well have discovered how to use lasers to achieve localised frame dragging and hence localised manipulation of time.
Quite an uplifting story of success against adversity, but with no real theoretical content.
