Alen Marinkovic is a new hire at EGSI Super Atom Smasher who, as a technician, has access to much of the equipment at the world's largest particle accelerator; he subsequently devises a plan to travel back in time using a method of time travel based on virtual genomics and the human genome. His goal is to change history for the better and to record his findings authentically. He is successful but almost doesn't conduct the experiment because of a distraction at the last minute by another new hire, a scientist by the name of Petra Stravinova. Together, after his timed experiment is completed, along with a fellow colleague, they attempt to create a complex network of past events, interactions and details with the intention of creating a virtual historical grid that would exist in a parallel sense with nature and eventually encompass all existing human (and other natural) histories. In this way they enable living and future descendants the opportunity to experience vicariously what it is like to be "anybody" else, as well as a set of methodologies that would allow for the verification of any and all existing facts, all in an existential virtual reality. In a surprising twist of fate, they discover profound insights, using the process to uncover information that is hidden and would otherwise be unknown to anybody with the exception of those that they visit; they essentially lead their lives according to their chosen professions, trying to survive global warfare, life-threatening asteroids, pandemics, and the negative consequences of virtual genomics, the basis of this network of everything. Through a series of events that move the reader beyond this realm into a future society based on global equality, the characters provide a gripping, touching, swashbuckling and intimate story about the ubiquity of science in its vast reaches, including a story of love and a survival of tragedy.Biografía del autor:
Born on the Gulf Coast in southern Mississippi, Vladimir Mavar developed an interest in science and literature early on, later studying business and literature abroad for several years while in the former Yugoslav republic of Croatia, now the Republic of Croatia. While his life has been turbulent at times, he continues to pursue his studies in business, having earned both an undergraduate and graduate level education while living in New Orleans. He is a part-time translator of Croatian & English, as well as an amateur musician. He has always had an avid interest in biology, physics, sociology, and history, as well as a keen interest in contemporary science fiction, including themes related to time travel, multi-dimensional travel, parallel universes, space operas, futuristic societies, apocalyptic and doomsday fiction, as well as modern romance. His debut novel is based in part on a story of personal loss, tragedy, as well as resilience and hope for the future. He lives in Biloxi, Mississippi with his dog Jane and enjoys the opportunity to entertain and express himself in novel ways. He is regularly available for book signings and poetry readings.
