LOCUS AWARD FINALIST!A revolution is happening in speculative fiction, and Annalee Newitz is leading the vanguard." —Wil Wheaton From Annalee Newitz, founding editor of io9, comes a story of time travel, murder, and the lengths we'll go to protect the ones we love. This program includes a bonus interview with the author, as well as an author's note and historical material read by the author. 1992: After a confrontation at a riot grrl concert, seventeen-year-old Beth finds herself in a car with her friend's abusive boyfriend dead in the backseat, agreeing to help her friends hide the body. This murder sets Beth and her friends on a path of escalating violence and vengeance as they realize many other young women in the world need protecting too. 2022: Determined to use time travel to create a safer future, Tess has dedicated her life to visiting key moments in history and fighting for change. But rewriting the timeline isn’t as simple as editing one person or event. And just when Tess believes she's found a way to make an edit that actually sticks, she encounters a group of dangerous travelers bent on stopping her at any cost. Tess and Beth’s lives intertwine as war breaks out across the timeline--a war that threatens to destroy time travel and leave only a small group of elites with the power to shape the past, present, and future. Against the vast and intricate forces of history and humanity, is it possible for a single person’s actions to echo throughout the timeline? Praise for The Future of Another Timeline: "An intelligent, gut-wrenching glimpse of how tiny actions, both courageous and venal, can have large consequences. Smart and profound on every level.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) "You close the book reeling with questions about your own life and your part in changing the future."—Amy Acker, actress (Angel and Person of Interest)

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Clever, compelling and utterly original. Laurie Penny, author of Everything Belongs to the Future
A multilayered tale of “editing” history, human rights, and the ripple effect. Smart and profound on every level. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Exciting and urgent. Saladin Ahmed, Eisner winning author of Black Bolt, Exiles, and Throne of the Crescent Moon
"Newitz's carefully built narrative of time travel and conflict is rooted in the drive and joysof intersectional feminism, sex positivity, and acceptance...This riot of a book will have readers delighting both in the thrilling battle over timelines in an intricate, alternative world and in the joys of inclusive feminist solidarity. Booklist (starred review)
[Newitz] highlights the truths of our past and possibilities of our future. The fantastical elements do not hide the all-too-real horrors women could face, but intelligence and hope are woven into every level. Library Journal (starred review)
Where the book really shines is in its page-turning plot and thoughtfully drawn characters... the story charges along until Newitz suddenly ties it all together with breathtaking finesse. An ambitious adventure that keeps the surprises coming. Kirkus (starred review)
The Future of Another Timeline is the mind-blowing punk feminist sci-fi time traveling thriller you've been waiting for, and which our culture desperately needs. Packed with action, sass, righteousness, technology and danger, it just might be a perfect book. Michelle Tea
The best punk rock / time travel / Chicago history / riot girl / mindf*ck of a book I have ever read. Grape Ape Forever! Dan Sinker, creator of Punk Planet magazine
It's like Newitz has written a science fiction addendum to Handmaids Tale... She flawlessly weaves between time and characters and creates a feminist, sci-fi, thrill-ride integrated into a covert history lesson. You close the book reeling with questions about your own life and your part in changing the future. Amy Acker, actress Angel and Person of Interest
Few stories are as smart, as nuanced, as exciting, and as unsettling as this one....engrossing and impactful. Karen Joy Fowler, bestselling author of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves
A page-turner and an ambitious feminist lens on the time-traveler story. Kelly Sue DeConnick creator of Bitch Planet, writer for Captain Marvel
A glorious tale of hope in the face of outrage, an anthem of timeless resistance against the powers that would lead us to our worst futures. Ken Liu, Author of The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories and The Grace of Kings
The Future of Another Timeline does brilliantly what SF does best: makes metaphor concrete to illuminate the human condition. In this case, the idea that women are consistently written out of history by men is turned into a visceral reality, and secret history becomes a thrilling secret war. Nicola Griffith, author of Hild
A revolution is happening in speculative fiction, and Annalee Newitz is leading the vanguard. Wil Wheaton, actor Star Trek and Big Bang Theory

Fantastic new sci-fi book

This is a wonderful book, imaginative and fun. Especially enjoyed the geological nature of the time machines, a completely new idea (to me at least) in time travel. Great story with fun characters. I highly recommend it.
