The narrator/main character of this ambitious inner space adventure is Charles Yu, a properly certified time travel technician who works, we are told, for the owner of this universe Time Warner Time. Yu shares his name, not coincidentally, with this book's author, but his supporting characters are not quite so recognizable. They include, for instance, TAMMY, an operating system with disturbingly low self-esteem; a nonexistent dog named Ed; and a mother stuck forever in a one-hour time loop. Navigating How to Live Safely In a Science Fictional Universe reminds you to implement its final admonishments: "Enjoy the elastic present; which can accommodate as little or as much as you want to put in there. Stretch it out; live inside of it." A Discover Great New Writers selection now in a trade paperback and a NOOKbook.
