“Terse, tense and emotional, the Slough of Despond generates a cool balance between science, history and human relationship.” —The Green Porch
“The concept of time-travel, paradox and alternate reality has always been mind-blowing and now a mind-blowing novel to live up to it. Hollywood check this out!” —Bookish Things 5 stars
In 1992, Radlan Saravanan runs a small business out of a Tudor cottage in the sleepy English village of Elstow. But Radlan was born in 2951, and when he falls in love with a local girl, he has to choose between running from his own people and condemning his lover to die.
He makes the wrong choice.
Travelling into the past, falling in love… it turns out that he was meant to do these things. He’s been manipulated all along. But now he’s slipped his handlers, and Time isn’t following the right script any more. Other versions of history vie for dominance, and our reality is losing.
In 1992, Radlan Saravanan sparked The Reality War.
The Reality War is a two-novel series inspired by The Pilgrim’s Progress, an allegorical novel by 17th century author John Bunyan. It is both an action-adventure series, and a spiritual journey made by two people, mirror images of each other from rival realities.
The Reality War Book1: The Slough of Despond is available now as a Kindle eBook and paperback in the UK and US. ePUB editions will follow later in 2012.
The Reality War Book2: The City of Destruction will be published June 2012
