To Say Nothing of the Dog, or, How We Found the Bishop’s Bird Stump At Last by Connie Willis

To say nothing of the dogTo Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis is either a quiet, gentle science fiction book with a bit of a mystery (a missing Bishop’s bird stump), or it’s a cozy, humorous mystery with a bit of science fiction (time travel).

The search for the missing bird stump involves several intrepid time travelers, Ned and Verity especially – three men in a boat, to say nothing of the dog – a cat that has time traveled – Wilkie Collins book, The Moonstone – Agatha Christie’s Piorot – Lord Peter Whimsey – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – spiritualism – jumble sales – two great butlers – the Magna Carta – the Battle of Waterloo – the bombing of London and most important of all (as all science fiction lovers, or Back to the Future fans know) – the space-time continium!.

Oh yes, and it is also several love stories. ( )
