Meet Dr. Gideon Wolfe, expert criminologist of the new millenium. A professor at New York's John Jay University in the year 2023, he lives in an era that has seen plague, a global economic crash, and the 2018 assassination of President Emily Forrester. In this turbulent new world order, Wolfe's life and everything he knows are turned upside down when the widow of a murdered special-effects wizard enters his office. The widow hands him a silver disc from her husband's safety deposit box, hoping that Wolfe's expertise in history and criminology will compel him to track down her husband's killers. The disc contains footage of President Forrester's assassination, the same video that has been broadcast countless times on TV and over the internet-with one crucial, shocking difference: This version shows that before the video was released, it was altered with sinister special effects. This explosive discovery will lead Gideon Wolfe on an electrifying journey from a criminal underworld of New York to the jungles of Africa and on a quest to find the truth in an age when all information can be manipulated. With this novel, Carr has boldly established a new genre-future history-combining the best elements of mystery and thrillers with unique historical insight. Breathtakingly suspenseful,Killing Time unfolds as the work of a master novelist. From the Hardcover edition.

"The Palik Series of Jules Verne, Published in conjunction with the North American Jules Verne Society, Edited by Brian Taves" Shipwrecked Family: Marooned with Uncle Robinson Castaway by pirates on a deserted island ... without tools or supplies to survive ... a mother and her children have only a kindly old sailor to help. But what explains the strange flora and fauna they find? The second volume in the Palik series, presented by the North American Jules Verne Society, offers another story never before published in English. Shipwrecked Family was rejected by Verne's publisher, so rather than finish it, he began to rewrite it with new characters-and that became the classic, The Mysterious Island, where Captain Nemo made his last appearance. Here, then, is Verne's first draft of that novel, one which is very different from the book that it became. Expert translation is provided by Sidney Kravitz, also translator of the definitive modern edition of The Mysterious Island. BearManor Media is pleased to present, in conjunction with the North American Jules Verne Society, a series of stories that have never before appeared in English translation. Tales from fantasy to humor, of castaways, outlaws, and swashbucklers, even stage plays, here are all the adventures that have made Verne such a beloved author. These books are unavailable from any other publisher, and the series has been underwritten by the generous bequest of the late Society member, Ed Palik, for whom it is named. Leading Verne scholars from around the world are collaborating to bring readers the finest translations and analysis about each story, under the general editorship of Society Vice President Brian Taves. Each volume is lavishly illustrated with engravings from the original French editions of Verne's stories.
