A Bridge Too… is a work of science fiction involving the concept of time travel and was penned by author James Huber as the second book in the Bridges series. Following on from the events of the previous book, this novella-length sci-fi story takes us back to brothers Tim and Dan Shell, who have previously spent some time inside the world of computers in a fantastical fictional world. Their cyberpunk adventure is not yet over for when Tim is introduced to time travel technology, his urge to go back and rescue Pixie from the computer world is too strong to resist. What follows is a retro adventure with plenty of nostalgic tech and modern twists.

One of the things which I really liked in this work was the conceptual inventions at play, and the ideas with which author James Huber brings the story about. It’s easy to get into the story from book one’s ending, and Tim and Dan are set out well as very different types of men, which builds to an interesting clash of motivations as the plot moves forward. The work overall could do with lengthening to fully explore these very interesting themes on the right level of detail, but what results at the moment is a quick and fascinating read that explores the possibilities of technology from a unique retro setting of the 1960s. Overall, A Bridge Too… is a work that will explore many popular themes for cyberpunk and time travel fans, and does so with good tension and character involvement.
