An insanely funny materpiece of science friction (yes, science friction)by an unrecognized comic genius
'Spanking Yesterday' is a novel written as a journal by the frictional and schizophrenic Ward Bobb who is institutionalized. Ward is obesessed with H. G. Wells' 'Time Machine' which he views not as science fiction but as revelation and prophecy. As part of his treatment, he must write a journal of his life, particularly his life at Kronos Technologies International (KTI) where he managed a technical writing department and where, in spite of... or perhaps because of... his mental illness, he fits right in. Amongst his odd yet corporately semi-acceptable actions, he sells stock to fellow employees... his tribe of pubs creeps... in a department library of pornographic books and pictures and then uses pictures from the library to control the behavior of the programmers with whom he works.
Ward becomes convinced that the KTI corporation is controlled by Wells' cannibal Morlocks who are establishing a beachhead and threaten human kind. When he reviews his journal entries, and comments on them as his psychiatrist has recommended, he finds that someone else is writing disparaging remarks. It all becomes too real and he is convinced that he must spank yesterday and take action!
