We found ten men, red from blood and dead…
At the center of an expanding mystery: a fabled Viking runestone left behind in the Minnesota woodland of ages past.
In this much anticipated second installment of Neve Maslakovic’s time travel series, St. Sunniva University’s Julia Olsen and Nate Kirkland find themselves hot on the trail of a fourteenth-century artifact, a missing runic specialist, and an all-too-familiar kidnapper who has used the time travel lab’s STEWie (SpaceTimE Warper) for a joyride deep into America’s past.
Armed with nothing more than a hunch and a keen understanding of History’s rules, can Julia, Nate, and their teammates track down the kidnapper and the missing researcher before the inevitable—and perilous—clash with History?
A skillful blend of mystery, science, and history, The Runestone Incident is a smart and satisfying follow-up to The Far Time Incident.
As assistant to the dean of science, Julia Olsen is tasked with helping Campus Security Chief Nate Kirkland quietly examine this rare mishap...then, just as quietly, make it go away. But when the investigation indicates that the professor's disappearance may have been a murder, those inspecting the incident unwittingly find themselves caught in a deadly cover-up -- one in which history itself is the weapon.
From the snow-blanketed walkways of St. Sunniva's campus to the sun-bleached cobblestone of ancient Pompeii's roads, The Far Time Incident is a lively romp through history, science, and the academic world in the wake of a crime.
When New Seattle's most popular resident—charismatic Delilah—takes a tumble off her balcony, the blame for the seeming accident lands on nineteen-year-old Scottie. More interested in finding out who her parents were than in searching for a personal brand, Scottie's already scraping the bottom of the popularity list. This will send her down to last place—and that means a short ride out into the frozen wasteland outside New Seattle’s gates.
While the town's social stars scuffle for the open spot at the top, Scottie, aided by her "Watson," the personal assistant her brain chip provides, scrambles to save herself and find the real culprit. What she unearths will shake the very foundation of her world...and place her squarely in the crosshairs of a shadowy killer intent on clearing a path to number one.
Set as a prequel to Neve Maslakovic’s time-travel series (The Far Time Incident, The Runestone Incident, and The Bellbottom Incident), The Feline Affair is a lively jaunt into science, history, and academia.
The Feline Affair is a novelette of about 12,000 words (50 pages).
Fast-forward to 35 years later: Felix Sayers is a culinary writer living in San Francisco of Universe A who spends his days lunching at Coconut Café and dreaming of penning an Agatha Christie-style mystery. But everything changes when his Aunt Henrietta dies, leaving Felix a photograph which proves that he was born before the bifurcation, not after, as he had been told. He has an 'alter' in Universe B.
Panicked that his mystery novel may have been penned already by his alter, Felix crosses to San Francisco B and proceeds to flagrantly violate the rules of both worlds by snooping around his alter's life. But when he narrowly escapes a hit-and-run, it becomes clear that someone knows he's crossed over... and whoever it is isn't happy about it. Now Felix must uncover the truth about his alter, the events of one Monday, and a wayward rubber duck before his time in both worlds runs out.
An einem nebligen Montag des Jahres 1986 teilt sich das Universum plötzlich und ohne Vorwarnung.
Fünfunddreißig Jahre später: Felix Sayers, ein Kochbuchautor im San Francisco des Universums A, verbringt seine Tage damit, im Coconut Café davon zu träumen, einen Krimi im Agatha-Christie-Stil zu verfassen. Aber all das ändert sich, als Felix ein Foto von sich und seinem Vater entdeckt – datiert auf zehn Tage vor seiner Geburt. Das kann nur eines bedeuten: Felix hat ein »Alter« in Universum B. Von der Angst ergriffen, dass sein Roman möglicherweise bereits existiert, übertritt Felix die Grenze in das San Francisco von Universum B und stößt in einer gefährlichen Suche nach der Wahrheit über sein anderes Ich, über die Ereignisse eines bestimmten Montags und über eine unberechenbare Badeente, bevor seine Zeit in beiden Welten abgelaufen ist.
