Today, we are excited to show you the cover for the second book in Wendy Nikel's Place in Time series, The Grandmother Paradox. This novella follows Nikel's time travel novella The Continuum (released January 2018). While the cover for The Continuum featured a silhouette of the Titanic, a historical event important to the plot of that story, for The Grandmother Paradox, we chose to feature the Ferris Wheel from the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago.
The Grandmother Paradox will be released July 10, 2018, and is available for pre-order now!
When Dr. Wells, the head of the Place in Time Travel Agency, learns that someone's trying to track down the ancestors of his star employee, there are few people he can turn to without revealing her secrets. But who better to jump down the timeline and rescue Elise from being snuffed out of existence generations before she's born than the very person whose life she saved a hundred years in the future?

Solarpunk is a type of optimistic science fiction that imagines a future founded on renewable energies. The seventeen stories in this volume are not dull utopias—they grapple with real issues such as the future and ethics of our food sources, the connection between technology and nature, and the interpersonal conflicts that arise no matter how peaceful the world is. In these pages you’ll find a guerilla art installation in Milan, a murder mystery set in a weather manipulation facility, and a world where you are judged by the glow of your solar nanite implants. From an opal mine in Australia to the seed vault at Svalbard, from a wheat farm in Kansas to a crocodile ranch in Malaysia, these are stories of adaptation, ingenuity, and optimism for the future of our world and others. For readers who are tired of dystopias and apocalypses, these visions of a brighter future will be a breath of fresh air.
