The Best Time Travel Book You Haven’t Read Yet

Cover Art for A Time and a Place by Jeff Minkevics

Mahoney’s work is great for those who like their speculative fiction thoughtful, eloquent, and messy.
Publisher’s Weekly

Barnabus’s nephew is behaving oddly.

Calling upon Doctor Humphrey for assistance has not been particularly helpful, because the good doctor’s diagnosis of demonic possession is clearly preposterous. Even the demon currently ensconced on the front room couch agrees it’s preposterous. But then, how else to explain the portal to another world through which his nephew and Humphrey have just now disappeared? Barnabus knows their only chance of rescue is for Barnabus J. Wildebear himself to step up and go through that portal.

Thus begins an existential romp across space and time, trampling on Barnabus’ assumptions about causality, freewill, identity, good and evil. Can Barnabus save his nephew—and incidentally, all of humanity?

A Time and a Place published by Five Rivers Press.

“This book packs a surprising emotional punch.”
Jenny Dee, Amazon.com

“How often does one get to read a book involving time travel and aliens, set in Prince Edward Island? It’s a riotous read and thoroughly enjoyable.”
Timothy Neesam, Goodreads

“I greatly enjoyed the chapters in which our time and dimension travelling hero finds himself in the body of an alien, purple-furred cat with opposable thumbs and then a seagull.”
Nancy Kay Clark, Goodreads

“Dr. Who on Acid”
Bonnie Keck, Goodreads

“Joe Mahoney’s A Time and A Place is a meditation on deep philosophical questions disguised as a rollicking science fiction adventure.”
Frank Faulk, Amazon.ca

“…the author has a decided knack for humorous word play which brings some levity to otherwise serious situations.”
David A. Kilman, Amazon.com

This weekend I relinquish the stage to my publisher, Lorina Stephens​, and my editor, Dr.Robert Runte​, who were kind enough to say a few words at my recent book launch. Lorina and Robert, take it away!

The launch took place at the Merril Collection of Science Fiction in Toronto.

Here’s a few words of thanks that I left out of the video in the interest of keeping it short and relatively palatable:

To my family: Lynda, Keira, Erin—Thanks for putting up with me going on about this book forever. It may not seem like it, but I do love you more than my book!

To Chris and company of Bakka books: thank you for being here today and selling my books.

My publisher, Lorina Stephens of Five Rivers Press… thank you for taking me on!

Jeff Minkevics for such a great cover!

My editor, Doctor Robert Runte, a legend in the Canadian SF community, and a great honour to work with.

And his assistant Kathryn Shalley, who believed in this book. Who said she loved it. Before it was edited!

And my first editor, Arleane Ralph. If not for you, I probably wouldn’t be standing here today

Finally, many thanks to the staff of the Merril Collection for allowing me to launch A Time and a Place in this fantastic venue. What an honour.

Thank you Sephora Hosein, my friend Annette Mocek, and the rest of the fabulous librarians here.
