John G. CramerJohn G. Cramer divides his time among writing science fiction and science fact, experimenting with quantum optics, teaching physics, consulting with NASA, and zooming off to CERN for another terabyte of data. In their spare time, he and his wife Pauline compete in AKC agility trials with their two Shetland Sheepdogs.

As a science writer, he contributes a bimonthly science-fact column, “The Alternate View,” to Analog Science Fiction and Fact magazine. A Houston native, he now lives in Seattle where he is Professor Emeritus of Physics at the University of Washington. At his retirement, to his delight, his colleagues presented him with a two-day physics seminar.

In 2004 in a possible universe, the DOE’s Superconducting Supercollider has been constructed in Waxahachie, Texas and is beginning operation, making unintended trans-dimensional signals that are being received in other universes and are attracting the attention of powerful and intelligent aliens, benevolent and hostile. This is a novel about cutting-edge physics, alien contact, wormholes, time travel, the politics of large-scale physics, and the race to change history and prevent the destruction of humanity.
