Review

"Timecaster is the funniest science fiction book ever written by me!" - bestselling author of Timecaster, J.A. Konrath

"Why is J.A. blurbing himself? Is that allowed? I'm alerting Amazon!" - bestselling author of Afraid, Jack Kilborn (aka J.A. Konrath)

From the Author

Author Joe Konrath here, with two messages.

To My Non-Sci-Fi Fans:

If you're reading this, maybe your a fan of my other work, which is not science fiction. My most popular character is a Chicago homicide cop named Jack Daniels, and I do my best to combine action-packed thrills with humor.

The Timecaster series takes place a few decades in the future, but it's the same sort of book as my others. Lots of tension and suspense, lots of laughs. It even features many characters from my Jack Daniels series, including Jack, Phineas Troutt, and Harry McGlade. The hero, Talon Avalon, is Jack Daniels's grandson. 

Maybe you're biased against sci-fi because you think it's all like Star Wars or Star Trek or Stargate or Dancing with the Stars, but this series isn't anything like those. This takes place in Chicago, and while the technology and science is more advanced than it is right now, these books are mystery-thrillers at their core. I basically took the things that people liked in my books, and put them in a futuristic setting.

So if you like my other work, please give these a try. You'll find they're familiar, and I promise you'll get a few laughs out of them.

To Sci-Fi Fans:

I've written more than twenty novels, but have only recently begun dabbling in science fiction. I wrote the Timecaster books because I wanted to create a future that I wanted to live in. A green, technologically advanced, libertarian utopia. Drugs and prostitution are legal, people pay takes in foliage to make biofuel, and there is no longer any crime.

Then, naturally, everything goes to hell.

The main premise of the Timecaster books is that the fabric of spacetime has echoes that can be seen, and that there are parallel dimensions and a multiverse. I had a lot of fun playing with the craziness of theoretical physics, and tried to dream up a future that could possibly happen.

At the same time, I wanted to write futuristic books with a sense of humor. I read Hitchhiker's Guide back in junior high, and loved how it was both clever and absurd. But rather than hop around the universe, I wanted to focus on a futuristic earth, and then cram as much action, jokes, and sex into the series as possible. 

This isn't hard sci-fi. It isn't cyberpunk. It isn't space opera. But even though it's supposed to be pure entertainment, it isn't entirely lightweight either. There's some real science in these books (mixed in the fake science I made up), and a lot of the concepts aren't only plausible, I believe they're inevitable.

I coined a term for these types of books: ecopunk. There is some actual social commentary in these novels, in between scenes of guys getting kicked in the groin. 

I promise that Timecaster is unlike any science fiction series you've ever read. If you want to try something different, something fast-paced, something that you can read in one sitting, I ask you to give these books a chance.
