Overview

Turn of the Century 2100 is a sci-fi based international suspense about what happens when a Berkeley, California quantum physics lab, and 12 other labs around the world, are visited by a "photon probe", an "electro-magnetic wave" state entity in a hologram, from a Geneva Switzerland physics lab from the year 2108.

The story straddles both the 21st and 22nd century and is centered around Alyson Higgs, in our time, and her great granddaughter (to be), Aly, in 2108. When it's proven that "futuresight" is at hand, science, the CIA, and Interpol agents around the world are drawn together in a quest to deliver five oracles to the UN General Assembly. When white-collar criminals and terrorists discover this closely guarded secret, the stage is set for a confrontation between the forces of positive change and the evil defenders of the status quo. Knowledge of the future is positive at best, but potentially a great threat to those of power and wealth.

Strong female and male characters in two centuries and on three continents engage in romantic intrigue with the future of the world in balance. The reader is taken into the amazing world of quantum science and its potential, but also is confronted by the economic, human rights, environmental, multi-cultural, and militaristic imbalance that is our present time. But this is not a search for the guilty or evildoers. This story faces the reader with the reality that it will take the collective will and positive action of the citizens of the earth to move from the significant state of denial and paralysis that is our times.

Turn of the Century: 2100 walks the reader down the path of "science faction", that path between fact andfiction that can only be traveled by the imagination. Be drawn by the story, enlightened by where quantum science is taking us, and be ready to be challenged by the realities we are facing as a human species. It's a new Century and it's our turn.
