      Wireless... in the Fabric of Time is a story about a young man's life becoming derailed by forces beyond his control. Like so many young people, Von Muir Carmichael has high expectations and a great plan, but life has something else in store for him. A college student riding the wave of wireless technology, Von doesn't remember life before electronic devices. His wireless reality is as natural to him as the shoes on his feet. He sees the wireless world as his lifeline. Even when he sleeps, he is connected to the Internet. Late-night text or instant message is part of his everyday life. When Von doesn't have one of his devices, he feels cut off from the world. His love of technology is the common thread between his youth and his future as a securities analyst specializing in software technologies. All he needs to do to graduate college and start his "real" life is email the final draft of his thesis to his professor... But in a strange twist of fate, the tangled nest of cables in his dorm room short-circuits, causing his hand-held scanner to open a portal of time into which he was split into molecules and zapped inside with his Blackberry PDA, video-phone, and iPod. When he awakens, he is accused of murder. The time is 1908. The place is Exeter College, Oxford, England: the upper-crust, well-bred, aristocratic, oldest British University of the Edwardian era. A hundred year jump back from 2008, when cell-phone towers, broadband, and wifi technology has not yet been conceived by the eyes of the high-tech world. Wireless storyline intertwined with an adventurous plot, a twist to everyday lives that adds fantasy, thrill and explores the effects of the dark side of technology on a promising young man. It is a science fiction adventure novel which will resonate universally with teens, young adults and those who understand the love of technology.
