When a time traveler accidentally finds himself on a futuristic train in the year 2069 and meets a young woman whose unborn son is destined to be the greatest musician the world has ever known, he becomes entangled in a beautiful, and thought provoking chain of events that go beyond life and death. British born, Californian author, Luthien Clarke wrote Music; a short book with a slow burning fuse. Music will make you smile, Music will make you cry. It is classy, philosophical science fiction set in England and California. Music is about time travel, the future; beauty, love, and not forgetting a futuristic train that goes round and round the British Isles. 'He is a musician. His name is Tark. He was born on a train. He will fall in love. Her name is Sylph. She will be beautiful but she keeps a secret: She knows he will die and she will be blamed for loving him...to death. An analogy, perhaps, well, Music will be to people what painter, Picasso became to the public. You ask: How would I know that? I answer: Because, I am Luthien Clarke, the time traveler and I wrote what I saw.'
