“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
“Terse, tense and emotional, the Slough of Despond generates a cool balance between science, history and human relationship.” —The Green Porch
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 human reality is losing.
In 1992, Radlan Saravanan sparked The Reality War.
The Reality War is a two-novel series loosely inspired by The Pilgrim’s Progress, and set in Bedfordshire. 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 and ePUB eBook, and in paperback.
The Reality War Book2: The City of Destruction is out now for Kindle and ePUB. Paperback edition to follow – expected end of September 2012.
