Thrice Upon A Time

by James P. Hogan

SOS FROM A FUTURE THAT WILL NEVER BE


It's amazing enough when Murdoch Ross's brilliant grandfather invents a machine that can send messages to itself in the past or the future. But when signals begin to arrive without being sent, Murdoch realizes that every action he takes changes the future that would have been...and that the world he lives in has already been altered!


Then a new message arrives from the future: The world is doomed!

The Chronoliths

by Robert Charles Wilson

4 avg rating
One day in Thailand, 21st-century slacker Scott Warden witnesses an impossible event: the violent appearance of a 200-foot stone pillar. Its arrival collapses trees for a quarter mile around its base. It appears to be composed of an exotic form of matter. And the inscription chiseled into it commemorates a military victory…sixteen years hence.

As more pillars arrive all over the world, all apparently from our own near future, a strange loop of causality keeps drawing Scott into the central mystery—and a final battle with the future.
 
The Chronoliths is a 2002 Hugo Award Nominee for Best Novel and the winner of the 2002 John W. Campbell Memorial Award.

Millennium

by Jeremy McCollum

Brett Quinlan is shocked and disturbed by the sudden disappearance of Christians all over the world, and now he is forced to examine his own faltering faith. Soon war, earthquakes, famine and disease ravage the earth like never before, and the young lawyer and part-time pastor finds himself leading a remnant and fighting for survival. After organizing the Christian Safe House Network, the new Global Government goes on the offensive and rounds up the Christians in work camps attempting to force them to give up their faith. Brett comes to realize that the only hope for Christians to survive is to flee to the last safe place for people of faith: the tiny embattled nation of Israel. Israel doesn’t seem to have a chance against the rest of the world, but Brett and the Christians know the only true Ruler of this world is about to return, defeat the Global Government, and usher in a new era: the Millennium.

This Immortal

by Roger Zelazny

5 avg rating
Conrad Nomikos has a long, rich personal history that he'd rather not talk about and a job he'd rather not do. Escorting an alien grandee on a tour around a shattered post-nuclear war Earth is not something he relishes, especially when he becomes central to an intrigue determining Earth's future.

Phillip, together with different travel agents, aforesaid it’s still best to book a flight a minimum of the period ahead, and even any ahead for international travel. Essay Mania. However if the two-week window isn’t Associate in Nursing possibility for you, she suggested delaying the acquisition even a lot of, to some days before you fly, as fares from fourteen to seven days prior to departure tend to be the foremost pricy.

There's a new time travel novel that is based upon Confederate President Jefferson Davis bribing Virginia to join the South by placing a ton of gold in the Bank of The Commonwealth in Richmond just before the Civil War began. That ton of gold disappeared and there is not a single $20 or $10 CSA gold coin in existence today. The Last Time Machine has Jessica Rothman - CEO of Rothcor Inc. sending six mercenaries from the year 2020 to the early Spring of 1861 to steal and bury the gold - to then be dug up in 2020 after they returned with the location. But an Artillery Captain - Daniel Hilton - accidentally energizes their retrieval disc and is snatched from his campfire to the time machine chamber - not full of smoke. He stumbles from the chamber believing he is in hell, and is immediately hit by a taser. Now we have six mercenaries trapped in 1861 and Daniel trapped in 2020 - truly fish-out-of-water. Then the story gets complicated, and at one point, Jessica gives Daniel a terrible ultimatum. "Your ticket back to your wife and son is to first be one of my lovers." Abraham Lincoln is thrown right in the middle of the action as we discover where the gold went.

This time travel goodie contains four of my favorite subjects: time travel, baseball, Irish-Americans, Mark Twain and other notable Americans of the 1870's. Loved the book and vivid descriptions of life in the late Nineteenth century
