About the Author
Kenneth D. Reimer lives in Regina, Saskatchewan. He is married to Lisa Powell, who edits everything he writes. They share a love for wandering the globe, and their home is decorated with artifacts that document their explorations. A love of literature is the passion that has shaped Kenneth’s life. He has three degrees, including a Masters in English; however, his education as a writer came at the hands of Lovecraft, Hemingway, and Robert E. Howard. As a literary artist, his works challenge categorization, ranging from horror to dystopian fiction, and from travel writing to poetry. Ultimately, it is the novel that provides him with the most effective platform for his ideas.

Then Reimer explicitly brought up Schrödinger's Cat, and I began to see implications of quantum corrections occurring. More and more, the story began to challenge causality and the perspective of linear time.
In the end, the author has done something really clever and disturbing: He has woven a web of time transit with a malevolent entity sitting in its center, waiting for the souls of time travelers to be caught in its strands - with causality paradoxes and butterfly effects, a clockwork monkey of evil appearance, time-crossed lovers, and a soupçon of physics and philosophy to flavor it nicely.
What emerges when you reach the end (but not until then) is a thoroughly twisted and enjoyable novel that succeeds in challenging the usual either-or choices of time travel.
I'm glad it's fiction. And I'm glad I read it.
