From Annalee Newitz, founding editor of io9, comes a story of time travel, murder, and the lengths we'll go to protect the ones we love.
1992: After a confrontation at a riot grrl concert, seventeen-year-old Beth finds herself in a car with her friend's abusive boyfriend dead in the backseat, agreeing to help her friends hide the body. This murder sets Beth and her friends on a path of escalating violence and vengeance as they realize many other young women in the world need protecting too.
2022: Determined to use time travel to create a safer future, Tess has dedicated her life to visiting key moments in history and fighting for change. But rewriting the timeline isn’t as simple as editing one person or event. And just when Tess believes she's found a way to make an edit that actually sticks, she encounters a group of dangerous travelers bent on stopping her at any cost.
Tess and Beth’s lives intertwine as war breaks out across the timeline--a war that threatens to destroy time travel and leave only a small group of elites with the power to shape the past, present, and future. Against the vast and intricate forces of history and humanity, is it possible for a single person’s actions to echo throughout the timeline?
Praise for The Future of Another Timeline:
"An intelligent, gut-wrenching glimpse of how tiny actions, both courageous and venal, can have large consequences. Smart and profound on every level.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"You close the book reeling with questions about your own life and your part in changing the future."—Amy Acker, actress (Angel and Person of Interest)

Humankind's best hope of survival against the powerful Teconean Empire, the Federation Defense System, is nearly complete. A potent new energy generator in the shape of an obelisk is the last key element needed to complete the FDS. Stryker discovers that the gilded obelisk is lost in time. The only hope for survival is to send someone back to nineteenth century California to retrieve it before the Teconean invasion is launched.
An aficionado of the Old West, Stryker eagerly volunteers to make the trip. Fitting into the nineteenth century has its challenges, and to make matters worse, Teconean spies have infiltrated deep into the ranks of the Space Corps. The race through time and space is on.
Amy was very strong for a woman and had often wondered about this. She dreamed of the stars and places and people that she didn't recall. Then one day Amy was approached by strangers; people in strange uniforms who offered to take her back home to the 27th century. After going home, she proved herself as 'The Gifted One', to save her father's planet from destruction. Then, having saved the planet, she was given her own space craft and crew to explore the galaxy and go to strange places in other times. Amy and her crew went on spectacular adventures where they met new people who became great friends. One adventure is to the Titanic just before its sinking, to try and save the log book.
My editor David (a former publisher and science fiction addict) recommended my book as 'something different and highly entertaining, and said “Features such as the 'Dreaming Room' enable realistic fantasy to entertain and beguile”.
Most of all my story is about being able to live our lives as friends in whatever time, place or dimension. It's about uniting us all as one. What a great world we'd live in if that was so.
