Zoe Out of Time

What happens when a time travel device falls into the hands
of a rebellious, teenage girl? CHAOS!
The title to this pretty much gave away that it was going to
involve something with time travel.  Or
at least, it did to me anyways.  Then
again, once you see the cover it’s all the more obvious.  Even so, I didn’t know exactly what direction
Zoe Out of Time was going to go in specifically.  Lucky for me, it was a really fun one.  That is, assuming you can logically pair
direction and time travel together.  Ok let’s
not get into that discussion, how about we just move onto a review eh?
As a child who grew up in the 80s, I almost instinctively

Strange Attractors TPB

A young graduate student discovers that his aging professor has been saving New York City from collapse by a series of “adjustments,” a la the Butterfly Effect, only to be informed that he must be the one to take over keeping the city alive. A grounded sci-fi thriller in the vein of Source Code and The Adjustment Bureau.

Every once in a while you pick up a book with no idea of what you’re getting into and finding yourself hooked really fast.  That certainly ended up being the case for me with Strange Attractors after just a few minutes.  I love a more fictional approach to stories as much as the next guy, but this more reality driven tale was a great new read for me.

Stories like this that sit so close to possible always seem to be that much more interesting, as it reall...
