There were five of us--Carruthers and the new recruit and myself, and Mr. Spivens and the verger. It was late afternoon on November the fifteenth, and we were in what was left of Coventry Cathedral, looking for the bishop's bird stump. (from the first line)

From the Publisher:
Ned Henry shuttles between the 1940s and the twenty-first century while researching Coventry Cathedral for a patron interested in rebuilding it until the time continuum is disrupted.
Annotation:
Having been sent on numerous assignments to locate something called the Bishop's Birdstump, incredibly tired time-traveler Ned Henry is sent to the England of the past. Once there, after botching a mission in 1940 Coventry, he further disrupts the timeline when he rescues a cat in Victorian England. Trapped in a bizarre Victorian comedy of manners, Ned must set the past right before he can return to the future. Winner of the 1999 Hugo Award for Best Novel.
Author Bio
Connie Willis
Connie Willis has won more Hugo and Nebula awards than any other writer in the field. After graduating from the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley in 1967, she wrote "true confessions" stories for magazines while teaching at elementary and junior high schools. In 1982 she turned her attention fully to writing. Her first novel, WATER WITCH, co-written with Cynthia Felice, was published in 1982. That same year, Willis won Nebula Awards for two short stories, "Fire Watch" and "A Letter to the Clearys", the first of which also won the Hugo Award the following year. Her first solo novel, LINCOLN'S DREAMS, won the prestigious John W. Campbell Award in 1987. Winning the Hugo and Nebula awards for DOOMSDAY BOOK, released in 1992, again brought her great acclaim. Since then, Willis, while continuing to write numerous short stories, has written a series of very short humorous novels, including BELLWEATHER and UNCHARTED TERRITORIES. Willis has edited several collections of award-winning short fiction, she has been the M.C. at several science fiction conferences, and her own work continues to bring her new fans and new awards. In 1998, the Colorado School of Mines' Mobile Robots Project named a newly designed robot after her, along with fellow authors Lois McMaster Bujold, and Ursula K. Le Guin.

Praise

San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
"Few writers can match Willis' blend of comedy and science fiction." - Michael Berry 01/18/1998

Kirkus Reviews
"Gleeful fun with a serious edge, set forth in an almost impeccable English accent." 10/15/1997

New York Times Book Review
"No one mixes scientific mumbo jumbo and comedy of manners with more panache than Wills, who, as you no doubt guessed by now, is in one of her lighter moods in this novel...." - Gerald Jonas 12/21/1997

Washington Post Book World
"Though Willis salts her book with up-to-date details about chaos theory, she is a quite traditional writer, since her novel is a domestic comedy that concludes with a marriage. She ably handles her large cast of obsessed professors, stolid but decent butlers, demented aristocrats, flighty maids and fearsome aunts. TO SAY NOTHING OF THE DOG is a sweet and honorable book that provides a great deal of pleasure." - Martin Morse Wooster 01/25/1998
