The First of July – an Epiphanal Startling represents the first in series of three books. It can be labeled by definition a piece of science fiction. If you enjoy thinking about what could have happened in the past that could drastically change where we are at this moment in time then this book will offer you an interesting perspective to consider. Should you be fascinated with where will be in in the future, this book will show you a future that is quite different than you have possibly imagined.
There is ample social commentary and a good bit of introspection that are contained within these pages. You have only to suspend your current preoccupations and sit back and enjoy the journey. Dedicate some of your most precious non-renewal resource, your time.
Consider that we are involved in a thread of time and that there are many threads within the fabric that life is woven. Can we change the past? If we could, what we would change about it? In the year 2113 a group of people, following the vision of one man, endeavor to change the past and by doing so to improve the present for us all. They work diligently to achieve what Dr. Leopold Jenkins defines as an “Epiphanal Startling’. It is a revelation of such significance that in temporal terms it reverses the course that mankind is traveling. It alters the fabric of time, it manipulates the thread that we are following and causes our lives to change in an instant.
There is an inherent need to understand what we are measuring when we speak of time. Dr. Adria Constantina, noted time theorist of the day, puts it this way; “We measure our lives by the ticks of a mechanized device that enables us to predict our current position in our journey around the sun. It is through this process that we see our purpose and in this context we try to give it meaning and substance. We mark it but because the process is indefinable when we use our limited intellect, we, through our attempts to label it, define it as something that it is not.”
“We now can see the past as it really happened. We are able to see the facial expressions of those that have gone before us as they lived out the drama of their days.” – Dr. William Lawrence, Jr.
Who are these people and why are they working so hard to achieve a result that may mean the end of their very existence? Their actions have been foretold and the results predetermined. The process continues, the journey is recorded within these pages. Read and witness it, it will be startling!
