Tiny Time Machine, the latest Amazing Selects title, hits the market today!
John E. Stith, Nebula and Seiun Award nominee (Redshift Rendezvous, Manhattan Transfer) offers up this teen-centered science fiction mystery tale, full of action and adventure and centering on two eco-aware protagonists, Meg and Josh, whose protest actions are interrupted first by the death – and apparent murder – of Meg’s father and then the discovery of his latest invention, a Tiny Time Machine built into a smartphone case.
Meg and Josh are quickly pulled into a mystery of intrigue and existential threats to humanity that only they are capable of thwarting!
We’ve seen time machines presented as steampunk snow sleds, telephone booths, giant rock formations and even hot tubs, but you’ve never seen one like this, a tiny, hand-held device capable of opening a portal into the future – a portal that is actually window-sized.
But nothing else in this tale is tiny – the implications – rooted in our desire to save the planet from its many ecological threats – are enormous and involve nothing less than the end of the world as we know it.
Tiny Time Machine is a joy to read, fun, funny (teen sarcasm that drills right to the heart of a matter), fast-paced and satisfying. Meg and Josh are a pair of teens you’ll want to get to know as they experiment with the machine, discover an unexpected future, thwart the police in true Keystone Kops fashion (they’re not criminals) and come to discover that they are very much a pair.
With cover and interior illustrations by Nikolett Timar (The Adventures of Rupert, W is for Wedding), Amazing Select’s Tiny Time Machine includes an introduction by Dr. Paul Levinson, a write up by the author as well as his award nominated short story Redshift Rendezvous.
