Time travel has existed for as long as humanity itself. Jumping into the past is simple, and scientists say that altering the timeline is almost impossible.
But Eliza, an idealistic geology professor, believes in historical change. That's why she's gone back to the Columbian Exposition in 1893, hoping to undo a horrible injustice whose effects are still being felt in her own time. On her way, she makes a secret stop in 1992. She's desperate to find Beth, a high school punk rocker whose ordinary life is about to become a cross-temporal tangle of toxic friendship and murder.
Eliza and Beth are part of a hidden war that stretches back millions of years. But with the help of unlikely allies from times past and times yet to come, they may be able to save each other ― and build a different future.
The Future of Another Timeline is a thought-provoking new novel from Annalee Newitz, founding editor of io9 and Lamda Award-winning author of Autonomous.
