Alternate realities not alternative facts

In the fifth novel in Ira Nayman’s Multiverse series (aka the Transdimensional Authority series, which is misleading because book four of the series was mostly about the Time Agency – honestly, if you blinked, you would have missed the appearance of the Transdimensional Authority, and if you didn’t blink, well, Elsewhen Press accepts no responsibility for the cost of the surgery to rehydrate your eyes), we once again follow the intricate web of events that unfold in a Transdimensional Authority investigation (oh! – so we could have stayed with the other series name after all – it’s not easy keeping track when these sentences can be the size of a Sherman tank!).

Why would someone, apparently chosen at random, have their consciousness swapped with someone else in another reality?

How would someone, apparently chosen at random, have their consciousness swapped with someone else in another reality?

Why would another three persons, apparently chosen at random, have their consciousness swapped with three other someone elses in another reality?

Why would the entire bridge crew of a starship, apparently… well, you get the picture.

What will happen to all these very confused people?

How does the Alternate Reality News Service get scoops on these events so quickly?

Why are their reporters acting so dodgy – do they have something to hide, or just issues?

Who are the Pops, and can they help?

Does the editor know what’s going on, and if she does would she even tell Noomi (our favourite TA investigator)?

What was that noise from her office when Noomi was ‘interviewing’ her?

Why am I asking you these questions when you haven’t even read the story yet?

Or have you?

Why are you reading this blurb if you’ve already read the story?

Are you looking for an alternate reality, or just alternative facts?

This is fiction you know, we tell it like it is. If you want alternative facts you better try a news service… or a politician. Oh, and if you’re looking for a news service, you could always consider the Alternate Reality News Service.

Praise for previous novels in this series

Welcome to the Multiverse (Sorry for the Inconvenience)

“It was freewheeling weirdness, with a distinctly Canadian bent.”

– (Shirley Meier, author, The Fifth Millennium series)

“My very first impression when I began to read Multiverse was that this was a book that appeared to be written by Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams’ hyperactive love child. Now, if you know me, you know I love both those aforementioned authors, so this was not a bad thing. As I read further, I realized that what I was seeing was less a combination of other authors and more a unique voice that had some elements of my favourite writers… I enjoyed this book. It had a lot of comedy that spoke to my own sense of humour. It also had depth to it that kept me thinking long after I was done reading it.”

– (Mike Plested, Irreverent Muse)

“The writing is clever and mixed up just enough to make the book something special.” – (Eric Swett, My Writer’s Cramp)

You Can’t Kill the Multiverse (But You Can Mess With its Head)

“This sequel to Welcome to the Multiverse (Sorry for the Inconvenience) is almost an invention of style itself. Very few authors would dare it and far fewer publishers would relish in the idea of publishing it.”

– (Indie Drew, Indie Drew’s Indie Files)

“[F]or those who enjoy full-throttle comedy, the kind that forces audible guffaws in public places, I highly recommend you give Ira Nayman’s You Can’t Kill the Multiverse (But You Can Mess With its Head) a try.”

– (David Kilman, Amazing Stories Web site)

Random Dingoes

“Ira Nayman is one of the best authors of humorous science fiction… His intelligent humour has a cool and sharp edge to it that may leave you stunned by its effectiveness.”

– (Seregil of Rhiminee, RisingShadow)

“I’m rating this as a 4.5 of 5 stars. Ira is at the top of his game in Random Dingoes. The satire is satirical without being cruel. The puns are clever without being pithy. The writing is impeccable. There is a wonderful depth to the characters and their interactions, including TAMI, the inanimate one. The story has nice little bits of Canadiana thrown in, which are always delightful to a reader who knows the turf. It all seems very real, in a completely surreal world. Great fun.”

–  (Ann Dalhunty, Goodreads)

It’s Just the Chronosphere Unfolding as it Should

“Time travel squared – or maybe Times Square at faster than light – or maybe E(d) Sullivan = MC-square, as Elvis, who appears as a main character in this gonzo novel, approached by Ms. Radames from the Time Agency (not Authority!), who’s a Beatles not an Elvis fan, might have put it. There’s also a Hindenburg (the dirigible), a Cronenberg (I’m pretty sure David), a Seldon (not Hari), and a Molly Holzschlag (either a former Connect Ed student or named after one, look it up), and lots more in this deeply frothy narrative. I’d review it for the Cross Temporal Press, if it really existed outside of this story. As it is, I can tell you: if you’d like to read something that Tom Wolfe, had he mind-melded with Kurt Vonnegut and a little with Dr. Seuss, might have concocted, snap up It’s Just the Chronosphere (not Cronensphere!) Unfolding as it Should. Do it last year!”

– (Paul Levinson, author of The Plot to Save Socrates)
