Selected for the September 2012 Indie Next List

A love story serves as backdrop for The Map of the Sky when New York socialite Emma Harlow agrees to marry millionaire Montgomery Gilmore, but only if he accepts her audacious challenge: to reproduce the extraterrestrial invasion featured in Wells’ War of the Worlds. What follows are three brilliantly interconnected plots to create a breathtaking tale of time travel and mystery, replete with cameos by a young Edgar Allan Poe and Captain Shackleton and Charles Winslow from The Map of Time

Editorial Reviews

“Having used H.G. Wells’s The Time Machine as the starting point for 2011’s The Map of Time, Palma now takes The War of the Worlds as the basis for this top-notch sequel…Fans of intelligent science fiction as well as historical thrillers will be rewarded.”

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Palma writes with shrewdness and glee.”

Washington Post

“A cross-genre masterpiece.”

Associated Press

The Map of the Sky keeps the reader guessing, checking, and thinking, all the while providing many sidelights on the literary history of sci-fi itself.”

Wall Street Journal

    Palma has done it!

    Orlando October 25, 2016
    One of the finest books I have ever listened to, the sequel to The Map of Time is funny, exciting, captivating and everything a reader can want. I was SO into this book that when I got to the end I IMMEDIATELY went to find The Map of Chaos (it's sequel), only to find it is not planned for Downpour. Argh! Thank you, Mr. Langton, for an amazing read. You all did a great job! Two thumbs up, for sure!
