Are we alone in the universe?
This is a question that we are unable to answer today, however, in the past, the answer to this question was “no”. We had brothers that were not extraterrestrials, but instead Neanderthals. Contrary to the image that we commonly have of them, they were just as human as us, the Homo sapiens, but they were stronger and had larger brains. Their extinction is still a mystery.
This book tells the story of Wallace Vidal, a young librarian who gets lost in the phases of his own life, but, accidentally, somehow manages to time travel to the future and gets captured by Neanderthals. Now, his objectives are to escape and to understand what caused our society to collapse, all while desperately trying to reverse his mistakes in this future that he doesn’t understand. To do this, he needs to survive on a long journey, where he’ll need to rely on the help of all those that he meets, be they Neanderthals or Sapiens.
With a flowing narrative and fast-paced dialogues, Homo tempus is a futuristic dystopian novel that is based on the most recent paleontological studies. Ideas from contemporary philosophers and primitive symbolisms are used to portray the human learning cycles that are needed during life and the consequences that ignoring them brings, both for the individual and for society.
