[Books: Fiction]

"The Return To Gibraltar," introduces readers to the idealistic and likable protagonist, a young African American at Harvard law known perfunctory as Horace Arthur Bates. This is the story of Bates and his time travels back into time, December 1491, to assist the Moors of Spain against advancing Christian "reconquista".

Horace returns back to America and must now face the consequences of what he has done -- "things are not the same," he says and embarks on an even more thorough road back to undo the damage he has caused.

Drawing from his education in law and film, author Ken Sibanda has written a science fiction book that takes the reader from Boston to antiquity Spain; to California and back to the blistering world of war torn Africa. In 2007, a young African American man by the name of Horace Arthur Bates receives an uninvited job offer from the law firm of Zimmermann, Brighton and Associates at a downtown Boston law firm.

He is soon asked by hook or crook and much to his reluctance to be part of, "The Program" and to fly a heavy lift jet, named Troy, after the place of war in eastern Turkey, to Spain 1491 to assist the Moors. Soon Horace begins to suspect that "The Program" is not what it seems and he starts to tie the loose ends together.

It turns out that he was misled and that the sole reason why he was recruited is because of a genetic mutation that allows for time travel. The real aim of "The Program" has been to clone Horace and to create an army of time travellers.
