Publisher's Summary

A simple mistake. A slip through time and space. A strange new world.

He should have been more careful. But Alfred Favero, Senior Analyst with the IRS, wasn’t. Now he’s stuck in a world of opposites, where everything he knows is called into question.

To survive in Yngil-wode, the taxman must rely on a mysterious band of outlaws and tax thieves. But he risks getting drawn into a war with a tyrant. He risks sacrificing every principle he holds sacred.

How far will a man of the law go to save his own neck? How far will he go to save the woman he loves?

Alfred’s about to find out.

The label reads: Do not get time travel device wet

What happens when our hero inadvertently gets the time travel device wet? Chaos, of course.

This is book four of the series. There are some references to the previous story, but overall it stands up just fine on its own, so feel free to start here. However, by this time, the character relationships have developed enough that you might not understand all the interactions if you start here. Just be aware.

This is a light science fiction novel with a heavy dose of dry humor. After all, what would you expect when the hero is a taxman who doesn't get why everyone dislikes tax collectors? (That gets a lot of play in this book.) The story is very well written and easy to read, but the plot has plenty of twists and turns that keep the reader guessing. The characters are also fantastic, really well developed with personalities that bring the story to life. Overall, a fun read that had be addicted from the start.

I should also mention that the narrator did a great job. The narration was clear, easy to follow and provided just the right hint of character emotions to support the story.

Highly recommended.

Alfred in the Multiverse

This is an outstanding addition to the Time Traveling Taxman series. First, the story in itself is very interesting. But more importantly, Time Slips explores some of the conundrums of the multiverse theory and how these changes bring Alfred to question his views of life and love. A story that is both light and heavy!

time travel at it's funniest

I received this free audiobook in exchange for an honest review. the story started off a little slow , but it soon picked up. this is the funniest time travel audiobook I have ever heard. the characters were insane, in a good way. Alfred, was the anal one, Nance the beautiful nerd with a sense of adventure, Fredo, an alternate version of Alfred, and Justin, what can I say about Justin. I laughed and found myself talking to the audiobook. This is a good sign that you too should listen.

Time Slips & Tax Thieves

I loved the twists in this story!

You really need to have had experienced the earlier books in the series to fully appreciate what Alfred faces. Having done so, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

John Carter Aimone is doing a wonderful job with the narration of this series. Keep it up!

Time Slips & Tax Thieves

Arthur and Nancy are out camping. He is so not into this stuff but Nancy is excited and he does it for her. That night it rains and their tent it flooded so they spend the rest of the night in the car. The next day as they're having coffee he remembers one single totally important thing: they forgot about the things machine in the tent!!! Trying to check if it's damaged he accidentally posted a button and they find themselves in an alternate reality .. one that leaves poor Athur telling from shock! Oops! The machine is damaged and their lives take in a surreal quality. Will things every get back to normal!?!
John Carter Simone is a fantastic narrator whose voice brings Arthur to life!
Fantastic audio and story!!

Robin Hood gone sideways

Book four of the time-traveling, dimension-jumping tax man gets off to a slow start for me. But once the adventure starts, it’s full of twists and turns. Some story lines could have been a little more fully developed such as between Nancy and the leader of the village where they spend the majority of their time. It just feels like a romantic interest should have been explored here, I know he was interested, we should have at least been privy to Afred’s hilarious jealousy.

There were also some character stereotypes, but this may have been just as much the narrator’s choice of voice as written word. Regarding the narrator, he does a fine job. For my listening tastes, he reads a little slow so I listen at 1.25x speed which makes it perfect.

The exploration of the concept of a single soul mate, one true love, brought unexpected depth to this lighthearted jaunt through time and space. Overall, I did enjoy this book. It was an easy listen.

I did receive a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest and unbiased review.

❤️

This book is probably my favorite in the series so far. Laugh out loud funny it was a pleasure to listen to. The whole multiverse story line is a perfect addition to this series.

Wonderful performance by the narrator.

So creative- new Robin Hood story

This is the ninth book I’ve read/listened to by this author and I would listen to anything she writes! She has different styles, this is her comedic, sarcastic very creative series.
Alfred and Nancy attempt to have a camping vacation, but a mess up with the Time Machine sends them to alternate times in space. They meet other versions of themselves and it is quite hilarious. Eventually, they land in an alternate time with Robert Hood and his merry band in the forest. Alfred is astonished that they abhor taxes and taxmen. While they try to get back to their own time, they get caught up in a war with the local Lord.

This is the fourth book I’ve listened to by this narrator (John Carter Aimone) and I have enjoyed every one. They have all been in the Time Traveling Taxman series. I would love to listen to another series he does. He narrates with great expression and character personality. His delivery is awesome and he is Alfred. He gives all the characters fairly distinct voices. I am either getting used to it or he has given Nancy an even more distinct voice of her own

There are no explicit sex scenes, excessive violence or swearing. There is the occasional like ‘damn’ but that is only to contrast with Alfred‘s ‘sugar cookies’ and ‘hummus’ expletives.
