The New York Times Bestseller -- Jack Finney's long-awaited sequel to his classic illustrated novel Time and Again.

Simon Morley, whose logic-defying trip to the New York City of the 1880s in Time and Again has enchanted readers for twenty-five years, embarks on another trip across the borders of time. This time Reuben Prien at the secret, government-sponsored Project wants Si to leave his home in the 1880s and visit New York in 1912. Si's mission: to protect a man who is traveling across the Atlantic with vital documents that could avert World War I. So one fateful day in 1912, Si finds himself aboard the world's most famous ship...the Titanic.

About Jack Finney

See more books from this Author
Jack Finney was born on October 2, 1911 with the given name John Finney. His father died when he was three years old and he was renamed Walter Braden Finney in honor of his father. He attended Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois. After moving to New York and working in the advertising industry, he began writing stories for popular magazines like Collier's, The Saturday Evening Post and McCall's. His first novel, "Five Against the House" (1954), told the story of five college students who plot to rob a casino in Reno. A year later he published "The Body Snatchers" which was later reissued as "Invasion of the Body Snatchers." Many critics interpreted the insidious infiltration by aliens as a cold-war allegory that dramatized America's fear of a takeover by Communists. Mr. Finney maintained that the novel was nothing more than popular entertainment. The 1956 film "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" was remade twice. With "Time and Again," Mr. Finney won the kind of critical praise and attention not normally accorded to genre fiction. Finney died November 16, 1995 of pneumonia and emphysema at Marin General Hospital in Greenbrae, Calif. He was 84.

In "From Time to Time," Si and his Project colleagues similarly become convinced that they can prevent the outbreak of World War I if they can only insure the survival of a diplomat scheduled to take the Titanic on its doomed maiden voyage.

Entertainment Weekly

Since its original publication 25 years ago, Jack Finney's time-travel novel Time and Again has been charming readers (and repeat readers) with its story of an ad-agency illustrator, Si Morley, who wills himself, via self-hypnosis, back to the New York City of 1882.
