Turning the Hourglass by Matthew Keeley

8cfdd2b0-8a03-4197-9d77-400f7cc7d936

Historian Dyrne Samson doesn’t want to read about the past anymore. Now he visits it. Abandoning University lecturing, he joins a classified organisation, hidden beneath the streets of New London. Their time-distortion pods let him witness any historical event he chooses. Almost. Visiting his own timeline is forbidden – the only reason he can’t return to the one event he’ll never forget.


Former student Copil Tailor was unlike any other Dyrne mentored. The only two ‘synths’ on campus – cloned from genes of the dead – they battled synthphobia daily. Dyrne’s guilt-ridden night terrors began the day Copil killed himself. And they haven’t stopped. So when headlines report the death of Copil’s famous mother, Dyrne seizes his chance to act. Manipulating pivotal decisions throughout her timeline from the pods could change Copil’s life. And death.
