a few years ago I read a science fiction book. I do not remember the title or author. The premis of the book was the development of stasis field called a "bobble" This formed a silver, indestructable bubble around the occupant of the bobble. Time stood still for those within the bobble as they were in stasis.

Can anyone remember the name of the book?

I would be gratefull

It sounds like MAROONED IN REALTIME by Vernor Vinge.

Ahhhhh! YES!!

Thanks John. That's it exactly. Now I can buy it again. I enjoyed it very much the first time and look forward to reading it again.

Glad I could help!

Not sure where you live, but it was republished by Tor in 2004, so it should be easy to find a copy:
