About the Author

Born in 2064, Alaric Thain was among the first interstellar Travelers, visiting four extrasolar colonies in total before returning to Earth in 2850, at the age of 73. He became Professor Emeritus of Earth History at the Sorbonne, and over the following fourteen years built his renown, engaging in numerous conferences and classes about the pivotal events of the 21st century. In 2864 he published his History of the 21st Century, sharing not only his knowledge of the events of that pivotal period of human history, but his insights into the mindsets of 21st-century people. In 2875 he once again left Earth for the colonies. His fate is unknown. At his request, his book was brought back to this timeline in 2019 by Artie, the self-aware artificial intelligence of his own time.


"The account Thain gives of developments in our future is believable, rationally derivable from our past and our current situations, and presents hopeful possibilities for the improvement of the human condition... All in all, this is an absolutely fascinating look at our world through the eyes of another. ALARIC THAIN'S HISTORY OF THE 21st CENTURY is an intriguing, clearly-written, and thoughtful look at our world from the perspective of a happier future, without many of our current struggles." - IndieReader (5-star review, IR Approved)

"Author Thain takes readers through a summary of human society up to the current moment before engaging most directly with some of the pressing social concerns of the present, like global warming, wealth inequality, populism, and technology. In speculating about how these issues play out over the coming decades, he deftly reinforces the idea of how seriously readers should take them in the present and delivers several captivating concepts." - Kirkus Reviews
