The Nebula and Hugo Award-winning author of "The Doomsday Book" returns with an epic time-traveling story that follows three researchers from the future who are stranded in the past during World War II.
Annotation:
Mysteriously, three Oxford University historians have been shuttled back in time. Stuck in the midst of World War II, Mike, Polly, and Eileen have a rare opportunity to observe the lives and times of their historical subjects. But when the portals that can lead them back to their present threaten to close forever, the three must work together, quickly and decisively, to ensure they don't have to stay in the past forever.
Author Bio
Connie Willis
Connie Willis has won more Hugo and Nebula awards than any other writer in the field. After graduating from the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley in 1967, she wrote "true confessions" stories for magazines while teaching at elementary and junior high schools. In 1982 she turned her attention fully to writing. Her first novel, WATER WITCH, co-written with Cynthia Felice, was published in 1982. That same year, Willis won Nebula Awards for two short stories, "Fire Watch" and "A Letter to the Clearys", the first of which also won the Hugo Award the following year. Her first solo novel, LINCOLN'S DREAMS, won the prestigious John W. Campbell Award in 1987. Winning the Hugo and Nebula awards for DOOMSDAY BOOK, released in 1992, again brought her great acclaim. Since then, Willis, while continuing to write numerous short stories, has written a series of very short humorous novels, including BELLWEATHER and UNCHARTED TERRITORIES. Willis has edited several collections of award-winning short fiction, she has been the M.C. at several science fiction conferences, and her own work continues to bring her new fans and new awards. In 1998, the Colorado School of Mines' Mobile Robots Project named a newly designed robot after her, along with fellow authors Lois McMaster Bujold, and Ursula K. Le Guin.

Praise

"Willis uses detail and period language exquisitely well, creating an engaging, exciting tale that cuts off abruptly on the last page." 12/14/2009
