Set in Victorian London with char-acters real and imagined, The Map of Time is a page-turner that boasts a triple play of intertwined plots in which a skeptical H. G. Wells is called upon to investigate purported incidents of time travel and to save lives and literary classics, including Dracula and The Time Machine, from being wiped from existence.
What happens if we change history? Felix J. Palma explores this question in The Map of Time, weaving a historical fantasy as imaginative as it is exciting—a story full of love and adventure that transports readers to a haunting setting in Victorian London for their own taste of time travel.
Read an interesting interview with the author.
"This book is not what you think it is. It is a Victorian mystery, a love story, and a dark science fiction classic -- but with its twists and turns and revelations around each corner, it is altogether something more.
Each of the three linked sections mix famous and infamous historical figures: Jack the Ripper, Joseph Merrick (the Elephant Man), Bram Stoker, Henry James, with some of the most inventive characters I've ever read. And the ever present H.G. Wells ties everything together as a central figure in the larger mystery.
The exploration of time travel is at the heart of The Map of Time, but not in the way readers might first imagine! The novel is full of adventure, deception, murder, and love (and lust), and it is truly a wondrous read."
