Book Description

A New York Times Notable Book. A New York Public Library Recommended Book. The sequel to SUMMER OF LOVE, A TIME TRAVEL (A Philip K. Dick Award Finalist and San Francisco Chronicle Recommended Book).

The year is 1895 and immigrants the world over are flocking to California on the transcontinental railroad and on transoceanic steamships. The Zoetrope demonstrates the persistence of vision, patent medicines addict children to morphine, and women are rallying for the vote. In San Francisco, saloons are the booming business, followed by brothels, and the Barbary Coast is a dangerous sink of iniquity. Atop Telegraph Hill bloody jousting tournaments are held and in Chinatown the tongs deal in opium, murder-for-hire, and slave girls.

Zhu Wong, a prisoner in twenty-fifth century China, is given a choice--stand trial for murder or go on a risky time-travel project to the San Francisco of 1895 to rescue a slave girl and take her to safety. Charmed by the city’s opulent glamour, Zhu will discover the city’s darkest secrets. A fervent population control activist in a world of twelve billion people, she will become an indentured servant to the city’s most notorious madam. Fiercely disciplined, she will fall desperately in love with the troubled self-destructive heir to a fading fortune.

And when the careful plans of the Gilded Age Project start unraveling, Zhu will discover that her choices not only affect the future but mean the difference between her own life or death.

Bast Books is also offering three affordable installments, The Garden of Abracadabra Trilogy, Book 1: Life's Journey, Book 2: In Dark Woods, and Book 3: The Right Road.

Other Kindle titles include "TOMORROW'S CHILD," published in OMNI magazine and in development at Universal Pictures, with a fantastic cover by acclaimed San Francisco artist, Tom Robinson, together with my blog, "The Story Behind the Story that Sold to the Movies." Also on Kindle are "THE SIXTY-THIRD ANNIVERSARY OF HYSTERIA," published in the anthology Full Spectrum 5 (Bantam), "EVERY MYSTERY UNEXPLAINED," published in the anthology David Copperfield's Tales of the Impossible (HarperPrism), "DAUGHTER OF THE TAO," published in Peter Beagle's Immortal Unicorn (HarperPrism), "SHAKEN," published in Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine and worldwide, and "U F uh-O, A SCI FI COMEDY," a novella adapted from a screenplay for a producer looking for the next "Galaxy Quest" or "Men in Black."

I'm the author of nine novels, two dozen stories, and two screenplays, including SUMMER OF LOVE (Bantam), a San Francisco Chronicle Recommended Book and Philip K. Dick Award finalist, and THE GOLDEN NINETIES (Bantam), a New York Times Notable Book and New York Public Library Recommended Book.

I published my first story, "ARACHNE," in Omni and have since published short fiction in magazines and anthologies worldwide.

I live in the San Francisco Bay area with my husband, the acclaimed artist and jeweler, Tom Robinson, and am a huge fan of cats and hummingbirds.
