Talk: Time Salvager

From the award-winning and critically-acclaimed author of The Lives of Tao, Wesley Chu comes with Time Salvager. It is a unique and exciting novel that explores the ethics of time travel, a very bleak vision of Earth’s future, and the power of hope. With Time Salvager, Chu has seriously upped his game, imagining a future in which humans have all, but abandoned a toxically polluted Earth and eke out a meager, hardscrabble existence in the outer solar system. Time travel is the key to holding this frayed civilization together, through the recovery of resources that exist only in the past.

Time Salvager

In a future when Earth is a toxic, abandoned world and humanity has spread into the outer solar system to survive, the tightly controlled use of time travel holds the key maintaining a fragile existence among the other planets and their moons. Remaining free means losing themselves in the wild and poisonous wastes of Earth and discovering what hope may yet remain for humanity's home world.
