Temporal Anomalies in Time Travel Movies
M. Joseph Young

Who is the author of the temporal anomalies site?

About the Author

M. Joseph Young first published several brief pieces of satire in the Elmer Times in Elmer, New Jersey in the early 1980's; he more recently is co-author of the Multiverser® Role Playing Game from Valdron Inc, which some have called "the next step in gaming".  His work with that game has extended to its two supplements, The First Book of Worlds and The Second Book of Worlds, and he has written the first novel connected to the game concept, Verse Three, Chapter One.

A member of American Mensa, he holds an A.A. from Luther College of the Bible and Liberal Arts in Teaneck, New Jersey; an A.B. in Biblical Studies from Gordon College, Wenham, Massachusetts; and a J. D. from Widener University School of Law.  Among his graduating honors, he is a member of the Phi Delta Phi legal honor fraternity, received an American Jurisprudence Award in Jurisprudence, and is listed in the eighth and ninth editions of Who's Who Among American Law Students.

In addition to the material he has presented here on Temporal Anomalies, he has several other contributions on the web.

One of the leading advocates within the Christian church for fantasy and role play gaming, he has long served as the chaplain of the Christian Gamers Guild, where his contributions include four years of the monthly column Faith and Gaming in The Chaplain's Corner.  Author of the book and e-book What Does God Expect? A Gospel-based Approach to Christian Conduct, he has a daily study through one of the guild's Yahoo!Groups by subscription, currently studying Romans through the week, with excerpts from his forthcoming book on the fruit of the Spirit on weekends.

He wrote the weekly Game Ideas Unlimited column about creativity in game design and play for Gaming Outpost plus many other columns on role playing games there and on sites throughout the web.

He also has written Stories from the Verse, a collection of stories created from the adventures of players in the Multiverser games he has run during the testing and development phase and since.

He maintains a page devoted to Dungeons & Dragons, the original role playing game, which he has been refereeing since 1980.  Here he has many programs, documents, and articles which the D&D player or DM may find valuable and interesting.  Knights of the Dinner Table identified this site as one of the best available for First Edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons.

His own home page contains several things of interest,If there's a problem, please let me know through this mailto form. including the Journals of the Architect, stories of his own Multiverser character's adventures as refereed by others; Bible teaching materials and illustrations; song lyrics from his musical compositions; and a little bit of discussion about law.

To assist those interested in his work, other pages can be found through an extended index of his web pages for those who seek content in their web browsing.  It includes a few other pages about the author.  Information about his print publications is also available.
