Joe December 17, 2014 Share December 17, 2014 This thread is for tracking down things you've read, but can no longer identify. I have two: the first one is a time travel and/or alternate universe series. Possibly involving a war/cold war between our universe and another one. I only remember one scene. The character, who joined the time police from our universe, goes into an alternate world where the culture is more Celtic than our own. He gets in a car with a woman native to that world, who drives. The car has gas lamp headlights, rather than electric. There are no rules about which side of the road to drive on, and they nearly have an accident with another car when leaving a bridge. No supernatural happenings as far as I can remember. I might have muddled this up. I read this back either late 80s or early 90s. Could date back a while before then. The second one I probably read this year. It's just one scene involving an early feminist and a stuffy old man. The man asks her if she's about to do a stypically male activity, I can't remember what. The woman says that she's going to do something else. He says he thought feminism was all about women doing male activities. She says it's about women doing whatever sort of activities she wants. He finally understands what it's all about, and I think she rides away on a motorbike. Nice bit of writing, but probably not something I would have come up with. Either of these ring a bell? What are you searching for yourself? Link to comment
