An adventurous novel in which H. G. Wells has to travel through time to rescue literary classics from extinction

Reading literature in translation feels like being let in on a secret that other people the world over already know. It used to be that "Literature in Translation" was reserved for Big, Important Books - Nobel-prize winning authors, classics originally written in Russian or French. But more recently, with the rise in popularity of international books, like the many crime novels set in Scandinavian countries, or children's fantasy novels such as those by Cornelia Funke or Antonia Michaelis, the English speaking world is finally starting to figure it out - people the world over appreciate, and write, darn good stories in a variety of genres. Félix J. Palma's The Map of Time, originally published in Spain in 2008, is now available in English, and readers will be thrilled to discover this "secret" treasure, already beloved in Europe.

Like the time machine at the center of Palma's ...

Watch for Palma's next novel, The Map of the Sky - a novel that again casts H.G. Wells in a leading role as the extraterrestrial invasion featured in The War of the Worlds turns into a bizarre reality - coming in hardcover, September 2012.
