With all of time at risk, it’s a bad time to fall in love…unless it’s the only time…

Robert Clementyne is going on a transmogrification machine hunt. He fears finding the machine will be as difficult as pronouncing the name. How can the steam-powered device perform as advertised, and how useful can any information be, coming from a steampunk themed bowling alley/museum?

It’s pretty crazy, but he’s been there, done that, and thinks he can handle it.

And then he meets the proprietor/curator…Emily Babcock.

Emily grew up in crazy, still lives in it—hey, it’s her freaking zip code. So no worries when Robert and his team walk into her bowling alley. The first visitors ever to her museum.

But neither of them is prepared for what happens when they open the door to the past…and the future. With a side trip through Roswell…and a face-to-face meeting with an evil genius/wannabe—who is on his way to becoming evil overlord-of-everything…

I had a lot of fun writing Tangled in Time, and when I concluded the novella, I realized that I had a nice lead into my next BAB, using those plot lines that hadn't ended, such as the mysterious Dr. Smith and the "Big Bug" and what had happened to the transmogrification machine and Professor Twitchet. Steamrolled also has a guest appearance from a character from a connected short story (but one not essential to the main plot/bridge line of the novels). You can find that short in A Death in Texas anthology. In fact, lots of characters from the books also make guest appearances, including Doc and Hel, and Sara even stops by, which was lots of fun. But even with the guest appearances, this is still very much Robert and Emily's story.
