      The Future of Another Timeline (Tor Books)

      In a modern-day United States just a step away from our own, time travel is possible – in fact, it has existed for as long as humanity itself. Jumping into the past is simple, and scientists say that altering the timeline is almost impossible. But Tess, an idealistic geology professor, has figured out how to use time travel to try to undo a horrible injustice in the past whose effects are still being felt in her own time. Meanwhile, in 1992, teenage riot grrl Beth’s ordinary life is about to become a tangle of toxic friendship and murder. And across the timeline, a secret war is brewing as a group of men attempt to destroy time travel. If they succeed, only a small elite will have the power to shape past, present, and future. Tess and Beth are part of this hidden war that stretches back millions of years. But with the help of unlikely allies from times past and times yet to come, they may be able to save each other—and build a different future.

      Praise for The Future of Another Timeline:

      "Newitz’s fascinating extrapolation is an intelligent, gut-wrenching glimpse of how tiny actions, both courageous and venal, can have large consequences...Smart and profound on every level, this is a deeply satisfying novel."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

      "The Future of Another Timeline does brilliantly what SF does best: makes metaphor concrete to illuminate the human condition. In this case, the idea that women are consistently written out of history by men is turned into a visceral reality. And when a murderous riot grrl and her found family of women go up against time-travelling misogynists, secret history becomes a thrilling secret war." --Nicola Griffith, author of Hild

      “A glorious tale of hope in the face of outrage, an anthem of timeless resistance against the powers that would lead us to our worst futures.” --Ken Liu, author of The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories and The Grace of Kings

      “Whether she's incorporating strange histories or thinking about possible futures, Annalee Newitz is always telling stories that are exciting and urgent in the here and now.” --Saladin Ahmed, Eisner winning author of Black Bolt, Exiles, and Throne of the Crescent Moon
