"Annalee Newitz combines time travel, multi-alternative realities and feminist politics in the fast-paced, complex and mind-blowing The Future of Another Timeline . . . a compulsively readable novel of controlled anger that, despite the horror, offers hope."--The Guardian

"It's like Newitz has written a science fiction addendum to Handmaids Tale... She flawlessly weaves between time and characters and creates a feminist, sci-fi, thrill-ride integrated into a covert history lesson.

"The Future of Another Timeline does brilliantly what SF does best: makes metaphor concrete to illuminate the human condition. In this case, the idea that women are consistently written out of history by men is turned into a visceral reality, and secret history becomes a thrilling secret war." --Nicola Griffith, author of Hild

"The best punk rock / time travel / Chicago history / riot girl / mindf*ck of a book I have ever read. Grape Ape Forever!" --Dan Sinker, creator of Punk Planet magazine

"Exciting and urgent." --Saladin Ahmed, Eisner winning author of Black Bolt, Exiles, and Throne of the Crescent Moon

of intersectional feminism, sex positivity, and acceptance...This riot of a book will have readers delighting both in the thrilling battle over timelines in an intricate, alternative world and in the joys of inclusive feminist solidarity."--Booklist (starred review)

"Where the book really shines is in its page-turning plot and thoughtfully drawn characters... the story charges along until Newitz suddenly ties it all together with breathtaking finesse. An ambitious adventure that keeps the surprises coming." --Kirkus (starred review)

"[Newitz] highlights the truths of our past and possibilities of our future. The fantastical elements do not hide the all-too-real horrors women could face, but intelligence and hope are woven into every level." --Library Journal (starred review)
