Interview with Justine Allen, author of Chronovisor
Chronovisor is based in modern-day London, and concerns the activities of the company Continuum. Continuum was founded in the early years of the Millennium by Cynthia Barthelemy. It markets the Past Life experience, which allows the user to live a few hours in the past of a direct ancestor, as if they were there themselves. The Past Life experience is not as safe as the public believes, and Continuum is threatening not only its own downfall, but the very fabric of history.
That’s a great premise. What genre is it?
What kind of readers will it appeal to?
Tell us more.
Jason Gabbey is a data analyst at Continuum’s headquarters in London. During his routine work, he finds some anomalous data, and becomes suspicious of his employer’s motives. Andrea Williams works as a personal trainer at a city gym. She becomes ill during her first Past Life trip. Steven Salt is a lonely and troubled figure, who is the leader of a protest group against Continuum.
Continuum’s secrets begin to unravel, and the three are thrown together in the fight against Continuum.
What’s a chronovisor? Why do we feel as if we’ve heard the word before?
Remind us what a time viewer is.
Ah, something like that excellent Jake Gyllenhaal movie –
That’s the one.
I discovered I had a passion for writing quite late in life, and didn’t know quite how addictive it would be. I naturally write science-fiction, and particularly enjoy time-travel. I wrote Chronovisor on my iPad, mostly hiding from work in local cafes.
