This is a spellbinding tale woven of equal parts epic and myth'with a liberal dash of hard science fiction.
When a one-way time tunnel to Earth's distant past, specifically six million b.c., was discovered by folks on the Galactic Milieu, every misfit for light-years around hurried to pass through it. Each sought his own brand of happiness. But none could have guessed what awaited them. Not even in a million years.
In the early twenty-second century, many humans are being born with psychic powers and are linked in a single galactic mind. Those without these psychic powers'the misfits, undesirables, criminals, and radicals'have a choice: mental reprogramming or exile. Exile, voluntary or otherwise, takes them back six million years, to a time between the extinction of dinosaurs and the rise of Homo sapiens, and to a time of exotic surprises and unknown dangers.
'The Many-Colored Land'takes readers on an amazing journey from the distant future to the distant past, using unexpected routes all along the way'A tremendously original premise; fast-paced storytelling that defies predictability; and a sympathetic and well-rendered cast of characters.''SFReviews.net
