Reviewed by Alice D. for Readers Favorite: "TIME TRIP ON A MOEBIUS STRIP." Narrator Philip Grieg is a marine biologist and recalls the day back in 1954 when he found a gigantic nautilus shell on the beach of Padre Island which is across the bay from Corpus Christi. One of Dr. Grieg's professors at school was Professor Moebius, whose great-grandfather August had developed the "Moebius Strip" which doubles in circumference and mysteriously interlocks as space closes in upon itself. Dr. Grieg and Professor Moebius both experience strong, overwhelming reactions to the huge shell which is now in Philip Grieg's workshop. Dr. Grieg's students build a car that will ride the Moebius Strip created inside the huge shell. Dr. Grieg agrees to go inside the shell and perilously ride the car. Thinking nothing will happen as he begins his ride, he enters, hears a woman's voice and sees her apparition, encounters an obscuring fog and then, one by one, famous people from history who have simply disappeared: Leslie Howard, Glenn Miller, Amelia Earhart, HRH Anastasia, Judge Crater,Jimmy Hoffa, Joe Kennedy, Jr., Michael Rockefeller and Roald Amundsen among others, and some less desirable, as Glenn Miller sounds his trumpet. "Time Trip on a Moebius Strip" is well-written "Twilight Zone" science fiction for real. Author D. Richard Lewis will capture the fancy of science fiction fans as well as fans of alternate history with "Time Trip on a Moebius Strip".
