Next Year: Ian McDonald’s new novella TIME WAS

In April 2018, are due to publish Ian McDonald‘s new novella, TIME WAS. Here’s the synopsis…

A love story stitched across time and war, shaped by the power of books, and ultimately destroyed by it.

In the heart of World War II, Tom and Ben became lovers. Brought together by a secret project designed to hide British targets from German radar, the two founded a love that could not be revealed. When the project went wrong, Tom and Ben vanished into nothingness, presumed dead. Their bodies were never found.

Now the two are lost in time, hunting each other across decades, leaving clues in books of poetry and trying to make their desperate timelines overlap.

Ian’s latest series is Luna, a science fiction series set in the future on the moon. The first two novels — NEW MOON and WOLF MOON — are out now, published by Gollancz (UK) and Tor Books (US). The third novel in the series, MOON RISING is due out mid-to-late 2018, also to be published by Gollancz and Tor Books.
