El mapa del tiempo

by Felix J Palma

El aclamado bestseller del New York Times, ambientado en el Londres victoriano de 1896 y poblado de personajes literarios tanto reales como imaginarios. El mapa del tiempo propone al lector un triple juego de historias entrelazadas, en las que un escéptico H. G. Wells es contratado para investigar los incidentes de supuestos viajes en el tiempo ofrecidos por la empresa de Viajes Temporales Murray y salvar a un aristócrata enamorado de una prostituta asesinada mucho tiempo atrás; a una mujer empeñada en huir de las restricciones de la sociedad victoriana; y a su propia esposa, que puede haberse convertido en una pieza clave en una trama de la cuarta dimensión para asesinar a los autores de Drácula, La máquina del tiempo, y La guerra de los mundos, con el fin de cambiar sus identidades y robarles sus creaciones. ¿Pero qué pasa si cambiamos la historia? Combinando personajes ficticios con reales, Félix J. Palma teje una fantasía histórica tan imaginativa como emocionante, una historia llena de amor y aventuras que también rinde homenaje a las raíces de la ciencia ficción mientras transporta a sus lectores al Londres victoriano en su propio viaje en el tiempo.
