Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Robert J. Sawyers award-winning science fiction has garnered both popular and critical acclaim. The New York Times called Frameshift “filled to bursting with ideas, characters, and incidents.”  His novels are fixtures on the Hugo and Nebula ballots. Now, his award-winning novel Flash Forward is becoming a network TV series, expected to air in the fall of 2009.

 

In pursuit of an elusive nuclear particle, an experiment goes incredibly awry, and, for a few moments, the consciousness of the entire human race is thrown ahead by about twenty years. As the implications truly hit home, the pressure to repeat the experiment builds. Everyone wants a glimpse of their future, a chance to flash forward and see their successes…or learn how to avoid their failures.

Synopsis:

The basis for the hit ABC TV series and the Aurora Award-winning novel that started it all

FLASHFORWARD

Two minutes and seventeen seconds that changed the world

Suddenly, without warning, all seven billion people on Earth black out for more than two minutes. Millions die as planes fall from the sky, people tumble down staircases, and cars plow into each other.

But that's the least of the survivors' challenges. During the blackout, everyone experienced a glimpse of what his or her future holds--and the interlocking mosaic of these visions threatens to unravel the present.

The idea of the flash forward or jump ahead in the time line of a story has been used since the 1960's. Originally published in 1999, this book takes that idea one step further in trying to come up with a plausible scientific basis for an actual flash forward event that everyone on earth experiences. Intertwining complex physics with personable characters with ethical dilemmas, Sawyer asks the question what would you do if you knew what was in your future. The TV series starts Thursday, Sept. 24th but start here to see where it all began.
