Publishers Pick for this week is once again featuring a Fantastic Books book. This week, Daniel M. Kimmel’s comic novel, Time On My Hands: My Misadventures in Time Travel.
The book earned rave reviews from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, Analog, Asimov’s, and True Review, when we published it two years ago. Now the ebook is available, for one week only, at the low low price of $2.99 (a 63% off the standard ebook price, and an 80% discount off the trade paperback price).
Time On My Hands investigates the myriad time travel troubles over which most science fiction readers have pondered, but it presents a fresh take on the time travel novel by adhering to the Aristotelian Unity of Time: it all takes place within a single day.
In the book, Professor Price tells the story of how he came to be in possession of a time travel device (which he may or may not have invented), and how he found his future hiding in his past. But the discovery of time travel will necessitate far more than just building a really cool machine: it’ll take the efforts of many people to figure out how to talk about time travel, the requirements necessary to be an ethical time traveler, and just whose office it is when my yesterday becomes your tomorrow without the courtesy of a knock on the door.
Also available this week at Publishers Pick are Mike Resnick’s Birthright and Red Tide by Larry Niven with Brad Torgersen and Matthew J. Harrington.
