MetadataShow full metadata
Strings of Time is a novel taken to second draft which plays within the genres of Speculative Fiction, Esoteric Thriller and Contemporary Fiction. The present day collides with the strings of times past and future. The past is present, it’s brought forward to now, and the choices of each of the major characters decide who’ll they be in their own futures. Set primarily in New Zealand, alternate worlds are present in real and imagined times, travelled through in time, dream or vision. Three apparently random people – Christina, Joe and Mary, the names are significant – in three apparently random narratives, undertake modern-day quests, resulting in each, idiosyncratically, exploring their worlds for self-knowledge and understanding of their place in the world. Unlocking the secrets of past lives, that concurrently run alongside their present-day selves, these characters will learn how to reunite with their true selves, and therefore alter their current reality. A connection snakes through the novel, culminating in the characters meeting themselves through the veil, and so each may choose whether to be released, or remain bound by their knowledge. We are our own stories.
