Meet the Author

Alton Bock is a writer, software developer, gardening hobbyist, and all-around sci-fi/fantasy/video-game connoisseur. He loves Star Wars and Stargate, plays piano, crochets a fierce chain-link scarf, and can defeat almost anyone in Mario Kart. He also tinkers with game development, pencil sketching, and cycling. He also loves Chinese cooking. He lives in the Midwest with his wife and three sons. And he would love to make your acquaintance!From a young age, Alton had an active imagination. He was punished regularly in school for talking out of turn and making up wild, fantastical fables that had nothing to do the assigned class subject. This led to an all-time record of after-school principal's office detentions. Alton is quite proud of this accomplishment.In high school, Alton punked out and tried to deny his true self. He believed high school would be just like "Saved By The Bell" and (the original) "90210." To his dismay, he was not Zach Morris. Neither was he A.C. Slater. He wasn't even whatever-Brian-Austin-Green's-character-was-called! No, he was worse than Screech. Without friends, he turned to writing ridiculous stories that had no hope of ever seeing the light of day. He was uncool, unliked, and unashamed.Things turned around for him eventually. He married his wife, to whom all his books are dedicated, and he went on to father three (and counting!) boys. He loves his family. He loves his life. And he still loves writing.

    Enjoyable Story if You Like Time Travel

    If you like time travel stories focused on the ethics of time travel and how time traveling would affect reality, this title is worth checking out—unless you can't stand reading about the Holocaust, because that's when a lot of the story takes place. I enjoyed the story despite not caring for the title character (Genesis).

    The objectionable content is limited without producing a whitewashed story. (The sample pages give a good feel for what the book's like. Pretty much, if you object to a story acknowledging the fact that people do bad things, you won't like it. If you just don't want to see bad things explicitly described in graphic detail, there's nothing that I can recall in "Genesis" that'll bother you.)

    Disclaimer: I read an earlier edition of this book. It's my understanding no significant changes were made between the edition I read and this one.
