Well, this is your lucky day. You can be the first kid on your block to march on over to audible.com and pick up a brand new release from your old pal Sisco. It's called "The Eli Event." Part of the book takes place in 2312. Part of it takes place in 2034, and part of it takes place in almost real-time 2015.
What I appreciated about this book (and it was GREAT fun to record), is that it's got some action. But it's not about the action. It takes the usual "butterfly effect" type problems, and the "grandfather paradox" problems in time travel stories, and it turns them in a different direction. The author, Dave Gash (a terrific and friendly guy), also has a knack for keeping a natural humor wrapped around the story, even in it's most serious moments. He has created an array of great characters in this book, and for the actor behind the mic, that is what it's all about.
It's cold. You're stuck inside. You have some sort of sound playing device. Here, I am making it easy for you.
2015: Los Angeles is destroyed in the ELI Event, a space-weapon catastrophe that leads to a bleak and brutal distant future for all but the privileged few - unless rogue time-travelers from the twenty-fourth century can prevent the tragedy and mend the timeline. In an attempt to protect humanity from itself, the sentient computer ELI steals the weapon's code, but unwittingly makes his only friend, fifteen-year-old Robin Kirkland, a suspect in the sabotage and the target of a military manhunt. Eli's creators, scientists Stephen Wheeler and Kelly Duncan, find a mysterious ally in Arty, a mere janitor sent from the near future to prevent the ELI Event and change history. But there is another, anonymous player: ruthless Vice Governor Lokus has also jumped upstream to stop them and thus leave his elite and entitled future world unchanged. The race is on - not just to save present-day Los Angeles, but to alter the future of mankind and its machines forever.
