Editorial Reviews


  • "Highly recommend. It's fun, clever, cool, witty, surprising, political, sexy, everything a sci-fi book should be. And as someone who's also written a sci-fi-time-travel-humor novel, I love that Marty Essen doesn't break the time rules he sets up from the start - so many sci-fi authors do, and as far as I'm concerned, that's just lazy writing. Not the case here! Yes, his characters learn and adapt and grow, but the foundation of his rules remain intact always. To repeat: fun, witty, surprising, sexy. Highly recommend."--Jeff Abugov, writer, producer, director, and Golden Globe Award, Peabody Award, and People's Choice Award-winner
  • "Time Is Irreverent is a delightful romp that scores solid satirical points about religion, human nature, sex, the Trump administration, and a great deal more."--Tom Flynn, Free Inquiry magazine 

  • "Ironic, original, hysterically funny, deftly crafted, and an impressively entertaining read from first page to last, Time Is Irreverent by Marty Essen is an especially and unreserved recommended for community library Science Fiction & Fantasy collections. It should be noted for the personal reading lists of dedicated science fiction fans that Time Is Irreverent is also available in a digital book format."--Midwest Book Review 

  • "Time Is Irreverent is a well-written, well-paced novel peopled with solid, likeable characters. Marty Essen is a talented author who has managed to wrap several complex threads into a light, enjoyable narrative. I hope he will continue writing in the sci-fi genre and I look forward eagerly to his future works."--Charles Remington, Readers' Favorite Book Reviews

From the Author

All three novels in the Time Is Irreverent series are my way of dealing with the Trump presidency. Rather than being depressed about a leader who doesn't share my values, I hid out in my writing room, creating a series that will be just as cathartic for people to read as they were for me to write. Laughter can be great medicine. A poll showing over half of Republicans in favor of a Christian theocracy also inspired my plot. What effect would such a theocracy have on other religions, women, gays, and lesbians? You'll find out in the year 2056.
Since I wrote the Time Is Irreverent series for a liberal audience, I feel it's only fair to warn Donald Trump fans and literalist Christians that this book may not be their cup of tea. I hate to discourage sales, but it beats having unhappy readers and reviewers.
