The Future of Another Timeline
The Future of Another Timeline | Annalee Newitz
Time travel has existed for as long as humanity itself. Jumping into the past is simple, and scientists say that altering the timeline is almost impossible. But Eliza, an idealistic geology professor, believes in historical change. That's why she's gone back to the Columbian Exposition in 1893, hoping to undo a horrible injustice whose effects are still being felt in her own time. On her way, she makes a secret stop in 1992. She's desperate to find Beth, a high school punk rocker whose ordinary life is about to become a cross-temporal tangle of toxic friendship and murder. Eliza and Beth are part of a hidden war that stretches back millions of years. But with the help of unlikely allies from times past and times yet to come, they may be able to save each otherand build a different future. The Future of Another Timeline is a thought-provoking new novel from Annalee Newitz, founding editor of io9 and Lamda Award-winning author of Autonomous. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

OMG! This book! It has it all. Mosh pits! Sisterhood! World‘s Fairs! Time travel! Anarchists! Geology! And just now, TWIST! Wow.

I‘m not much of audiobook listener, but I‘ve had a lot of long drives lately and I‘ve fallen hard for this book. I hope she sticks the landing!

ljuliel Sometimes all it takes is the right audiobook to hook a new listener ! I‘m glad you‘re enjoying it so much. 4w

I felt a gentle pressure at my elbow and turned to see Soph beside me, looping my arm through hers. All around us, the New Women and Spiritualists and Midway dancers and anarchists were linking arms, forming a closed circle around Comstock...We stood silently, dozens of us from dozens of places.
Morehshin spoke up. “You are one. We are many. You cannot make us feel shame.”

This is so, so good. This is so good. I feel weird about it, but it‘s like it was made for me. The suburban desolation that is Irvine! Time travel!! Punks! Defeating Comstock! I spent part of this book convincing myself that the punk band Grape Ape must be real. It sounded so familiar. And there is a music video. https://tinyurl.com/wwbnvc9

Eh. That's all I can really say. I wanted to like it but couldn't finish paperback or audiobook. So I quit.
Worked on this knit scarf/wrap while listening.

An alternate history / present / future about a reality where incredible geologic "Machines" allow time travel. For Tess, a member of the Daughters of Harriet, they're an important part of an edit war to preserve the rights of women and nonbinary people against misogynist followers of Cromstock. Often unsettling, constantly intriguing, and overall incredible. A feminist time travel novel like none other I've ever read!

4.5 stars / ⭐⭐⭐⭐

“The Future of Another Timeline” pits time-traveling Riot Grrrls against time-traveling MRAs and after you read that description you‘re either all in or totally out (I think it‘s obvious I‘m the former)

This is a tale of relationships, friends and love and loss, with some time travel too. As in real life, a small change can have a much bigger impact than expected. It has violence, love and a lot of emotions too. It‘s sharp, clever, feminist, queer, inclusive, totally amazing and utterly compelling. I loved every minute of it.

I finished this earlier today and BLIMEY WAS IT AMAZING! I am still frothing at the mouth over it. A feminist science fiction novel that features LGBT relationships and representation, timey-wimey time traveling, punk rock bands, women being awesome, interesting historical information, great pacing, and a fantastic cast of characters. What else could you possibly want? This book is sheer perfection! 😍📚💕

I love the cover, and a location on the Saskatchewan-Manitoba border is integral to the functioning of the time traveling Universe, so it's made a positive impression so far! 3 chapters in.

Tonight was the Chicago stop on Annalee‘s tour for The Future of Another Timeline. As expected, after a reading there was a wide-ranging discussion on time travel, feminism, punk rock, belly dancing, murder, Chicago and so much more—and yes, all feature prominently in the book. Entertaining and thought-provoking book + fascinating discussion = fantastic event. Such a fun evening!

ljuliel I like the bright orange shirt and matching socks. Very cute. 😊 5mo

Kids and I are at the library on a quiet rainy Saturday. My oldest just told me he‘d rather read his new books than play 😭😭they grow up so fast! So happy he loves to read too. #raisingreaders

Reading this one while they read and play.

Tamra I‘m still waiting to hear that from either of my kids. 😆 5mo
Slajaunie I only ever heard it from one of my kids. She and I trade books. The other two do not read. 5mo

Join a diverse as hell crew as they time traveling to stop a group of dudes from making edits to the timeline to destroy women's rights. Not only focusing on cis women but also transwomen and non-binary. The whole idea of purposely changing somethings but with the goal being a very specific change is...like that would be SO HARD! Rep galore: Chinese, Korean, Black, Jewish, transgender, F/F romance & non-binary cast

rsteve388 I hear this is excellent. It on my TBR for sure. 5mo

Tuesday was a big day for new releases. So many great books. I had three preorders but only one can be read first. Going with the tagged book—Annalee always has something interesting to say and I can‘t wait to see what their latest book is all about. And for a bonus, the jacket design is by Will Staehle who is one of my all-time favorite jacket designers/illustrators.

Now reading...

Mind-blowing #bookmail today. Honestly, I don‘t even know where to start. I want to read all three right now—simultaneously if my brain could handle it...which, obviously, it can‘t since I‘m just not that awesome. Sequels to Carry On & Grasshopper Jungle (two of my favorite YA books ever)?!? A thousand times yes!!! And a new book by Annalee Newitz, one of the most interesting & thought-provoking science/science fiction writers today?!? 😍😍😍

A fun & unique read that involves alternate history, time travel, punk rock, and feminism...so you really can't go wrong here. I absolutely enjoyed the incorporation of true historical events with a twist. It also contains some awesome characters (including great LGBTQ+ representation). I would love to see a screen adaptation one day. In stores 9/24!!

Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this book from #bookishfirst in exchange for my honest review.

Silent Book Club: Raleigh Chapter!

Lcsmcat ? 6mo
akaGingerK @Lcsmcat That‘s my book and beer choices for tonight‘s Silent Book Club meeting in Raleigh, NC. 30 minutes of settling in and saying hellos + what we brought to read, an hour of silent reading, and then it ends, and people keep reading or talk or take off for the evening. 6mo
akaGingerK @Lcsmcat There are chapters popping up in bars, cafes, bookstores & libraries internationally- there‘s an official website, but MeetUp & Facebook may help one find similar local groups 6mo
Lcsmcat @akaGingerK I live in the Triangle and had never heard of it. Do you meet in the same place each time or does it move around ? 6mo
akaGingerK @Lcsmcat The Durham one has a steady location at Bull City Ciderworks on the second Tuesday of the month. Raleigh meets on third Wednesdays at House of Hops; the organizer is looking for a more inviting space - it‘s really loud, even for a bottle shop. But it‘s free, willing to host, & there‘s enough space, so. (edited) 6mo

I really enjoyed the idea behind this book - time travel with the intent to assist in the struggle for women‘s rights. I also really liked the two varying perspectives and stories. I didn‘t love the way the time travel was dealt with. I think I wanted it to be a bigger and more developed theme in the book as far as explaining it and giving more detail. I liked this, but thought it could have been better.

The cover for Annalee Newitz‘s new book is gorgeous. And yes, it is designed by my favorite book cover designer, Will Staehle...Seriously, I could sit here and stare at it all day...but that wouldn‘t be very productive so I‘ll try to resist. I‘ll try really, really hard and maybe only peek at it now and then...

Another big release coming in September. Super excited about this one especially since Annalee told me that her time traveling geologists (just love writing that!) visit the Nabataean Kingdom. I expect this one will be as fun and interesting as, although very different from, her previous book, Autonomous. Cover reveal coming soon...according to Twitter or some such...can‘t wait! (Blurb is from Amazon.)
