About the Author
Eddie Upnick was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1953. He graduated from Benjamin Cardozo High School in Bayside, New York in 1971. In 1976, he graduated from New Paltz State University of New York with a BA in Anthropology. He has worked as a joke writer for Rodney Dangerfield, among others, and as a situation comedy writer between the years 1975-1996. He invented a game called Super Chess in 1984. Super Chess was declared one of the top ten strategy games of the year in Games Magazine. He has been married since 1981 and also shares his home with two parrots.
While on vacation in Antigua, in 1995, Upnick met an Englishman named Sidney Dowse. Mr. Dowse was one of the men who had escaped from Sagan, the prison camp portrayed in the 1963 movie, The Great Escape. Mr. Dowse had top secret information that was not in any history book. Dowse related events both from his own recollections, as well as those he himself had been told by his associate, Stewart Menzies, who was the head of MI-6 during World War Two. Menzies had daily meetings with Winston Churchill. Upnick made a promise to Sidney Dowse that he would not reveal anything he had been told until after his death. Mr. Dowse died in 2008.
Mr. Dowse's incredible recollections inspired the writing of Time Will Tell, Future Tense and 2052. Certain facts, unknown to history, are woven into the story. Future Tense is the sequel to Time Will Tell, which takes place twenty years after TWT ended, covering the years 2022-2028. The third book in the series titled 2052, takes place between the years 2028 and 2053. 2052 asks the question has future history already happened? The shocking ending to 2052 will answer that question.
