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 he was meant to do these things. He's been manipulated all along, but now he's slipped his handlers, and Time is no longer following the right script. Other versions of history vie for dominance, and our reality is losing.

In 1992, Radlan Saravanan sparked The Reality War.

The second and final book in the series, The City of Destruction, will be published spring 2012.

Tim C. Taylor lives with his family in an old village in England called Bromham. When he was a young and impressionable lad, between 1977 and 1978, several important things happened to him all at once: 2000AD, Star Wars, Blake's 7, and Dungeons & Dragons. Consequently, he now writes science fiction.Tim's short fiction has been published in a number of magazines, and most recently in Shoes, Ships & Cadavers and Further Conflicts, anthologies that featured classy authors such as Alan Moore, Lauren Beukes, and Dan Abnett. His ambition is that one day, Moore, Beukes, and Abnett will proudly write in their bios that they once shared an anthology with Tim C. Taylor.It wasn't always that way. Before a series of Doctor Who novels inspired him to start writing fiction in 2002, Tim wrote first music and then software. After twenty years in the software industry, Tim took a break in 2011, setting up Greyhart Press, an eBook publisher of science fiction, horror, and fantasy. While most of his time has been spent publishing other authors, Tim found time to complete his first two novels, a series called The Reality War, published February 2012.In the real world, he is husband, Dad, sometime-brewer, and oftentimes-builder of Lego constructs to his son's designs. His favorite beer is Uplift Ale, named in honor of SF author David Brin, and available exclusively from his garage.Find him on the web at or on Twitter @TimCTaylor
