Description

What if it wasn't aliens? A rousing, fast-paced novel of time travel unlike any other, from acclaimed author Wil McCarthy.

DEEP DIVE

Before disaster erased the coastlines and river valleys of the Antediluvian age--before the mythic Flood--men and women struggled and innovated in a world of savage contrasts. It turns out that our legends of the Stone Age are even older than we think. It was a time when a world of archetypes and myths was written upon the fabric of humanity in the deepest way--a world that has only been preserved in the oldest stories with no way to actually visit it.

Until now.

In a brilliant and dangerous brain-hacking experiment, Harv Leonel and Tara Mukherjee are about to discover entire lifetimes of human memory coded in our genes, and reveal ancient legends--from knights and trolls to the birth of humanity itself--that are very real. And very deadly.

About Antediluvian:
". . . gripping and . . . grounded in archaeology."--Publishers Weekly

". . . plenty of verisimilitude . . . superbly intriguing and captivating . . . bravura historical recreations, full of conjectural material. . . . Presenting us with a colorful cast of characters from across the millennia who have thick and rich existences, and affirming that the cosmic stream of life flows forcefully despite all small blockades, McCarthy has written a novel that looks both forwards and backwards, thus making a stellar return to the field."--Locus

Wil McCarthy:
"McCarthy is an entertaining, intelligent, amusing writer, with Heinlein's knack for breakneck plotting and, at the same time, Clarke's thoughtfulness."--Booklist

"'Imagination really is the only limit.'"--The New York Times

"The future as McCarthy sees it is a wondrous place."--Publishers Weekly

"A bright light on the SF horizon."--David Brin

"Wil McCarthy demonstrates that he has a sharp intelligence, a galaxy-spanning imagination, and the solid scientific background to make it all work."--Connie Willis

"In nearly every passage, we get another slice of the science of McCarthy's construction, and a deeper sense of danger and foreboding . . . McCarthy develops considerable tension."--San Diego Union-Tribune

"An ingenious yarn with challenging ideas, well-handled technical details, and plenty of twists and turns."--Kirkus
