Time Bomb is a Bhagavad Gita-inspired/time travel/save-the-world-from-global-warming novel with a queer romantic edge.
Christian Sparrow is a time traveler from the end of the twenty first century. His earth is dying, and his mission is to go back in time to change the course of history by disrupting the Los Alamos atomic bomb project. But he didn’t plan on falling in love with Archer Meyer—a nuclear physicist whiz-kid whose work and life Christian will likely have to ruin if he is to succeed.
The men will need to navigate through a perplexing world of spies, scorpions, sex tapes, and safe words before they can hope to discern their true duties, and perhaps save the world, and even themselves.
John Patrick is a Lambda Literary Award finalist who spends most of his time in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts, where he is supported in his writing by his husband and their terriers, who are convinced they could do battle with the bears that come through the woods on occasion (the terriers, that is, not the husband). An introvert, John can often be found doing introverted things like reading or writing, cooking, and thinking deep, contemplative thoughts (his husband might call this napping). He loves to spend time in nature—“forest bathing” is the Japanese term for it—feeling connected with the universe. But he also loathes heat and humidity, bugs of any sort, and unsteady footing in the form of rocks, mud, tree roots, snow, or ice. So his love of nature is tempered—he’s complicated that way.
John and his husband enjoy traveling and have visited over a dozen countries, meeting new people, exploring new cultures, and—most importantly—discovering new foods.
