An intercontinental, inter-dimensional thrill ride.

Lucy Montgomery is the 99% -- buried in student loan debt and pissed off at a rigged system. Francis Gordon Woodley, IV, is the top of the 1% -- heir to a corporate empire that can buy or topple entire nations. Manipulated by anarchists, Lucy sets out to destroy corporate power so that classless democracy can bloom into worldwide utopia. With his oligarch friends, Francis sets out to destroy government, unleash free-market forces, and spawn worldwide utopia.

With Lucy and Francis on a collision course, the Time Weavers race to save the rest of humanity. Every future their computers predict leads to a hundred-year dark age except one. But for that one timeline to emerge into reality, Simon must encourage his god-daughter, Lucy, to assassinate his mentor's son, Francis. Unless there's another way.

Simon Wentworth-confused physicist who believes he can choose the course of history from the intersections of past and future realities.
Fiona Black-optimistic proprietor of The Intoxicating Page, a bar-bookstore where literature is matched to cocktails.
Vladimir "Volodya" Kazimer-pessimistic Russian hacker whose software calculates the probabilities for different futures. Winter-cute little doggy.

Together, they are The Time Weavers.

About the Author

Ransom Stephens, Ph.D, is a physicist, technologist, and novelist. After 10 years as a research professor in particle physics, he gave up a tenured gig to become the Director of Advanced Technology at a wireless web startup. He's now a silicon valley consultant and author. In his latest novel, "The 99% Solution," three keyboard-wielding musketeers take you on a thrill ride that will leave you questioning centuries of world politics; "The Sensory Deception" is a story of environmentalism, virtual reality, and idealism gone wrong; and his first novel, "The God Patent," is a perspective altering story of science and religion. His first nonfiction book, "The Left Brain Speaks The Right Brain Laughs: a look at the neuroscience of innovation & creativity," brings you up to date on how your brain works, how to work it better, and does so with plenty of wisecracks. Dr. Stephens is also a cussing, beer-swilling Raider fan.
