Reality is not what it was. Desperate science run amok has collided with dark sorcery, and together they have ripped open a gaping wound into... something. Now, in an instant, everything is different. The horrific is mundane, the impossible rational. Nothing works and everyone pays.Welcome to ... Magic Time.
For rising young lawyer Cal Griffin, it's just another day in the Big City, full of stress, screw-ups, deadlines, and anxiety. That is, until New York is rocked by a series of bizarre tremors -- and the lights go off...for good. Trapped in a giant metropolis and cut off from the rest of the world, Cal tries desperately to make sense of the surreal chaos that engulfs his crippled city. Worst of all, the people around him are...changing. Once ordinary humans are becoming embodiments of their darkest desires, manifestations of their deepest fears. Packs of pale, crouched figures stalk the subways, glowing child-faces peer out of the shadows...and monsters prowl Times Square.
Similar weirdness is happening everywhere, from the dank, cold heart of a West Virginia coal mine to a remote lab in South Dakota -- where an overworked team of government physicists has unwittingly invited something catastrophic into the world -- to the highest levels of power in Washington, D.C.
And Cal Griffin is not the only one who will be forced into a strange new role in this brave new world of nightmare and wonder. A spinster school-teacher, a lonely miner, a refugee doctor, a visionary street person, a brooding Secret Service agent, all share a staggering responsibility with the young attorney to make sense of the senseless -- and to follow an awesome destiny. For they are to be soldiers in a titanic battle between darkness and light. And its raging hellfires will effect the most astonishing transformation of all -- turning a young man of pure heart into that rarest of creatures: a hero.
From the Publisher: MAGIC TIME is HarperCollins' sole science fiction/fantasy hardcover release for the 2001 Christmas season. It is the first in a series of three novels, scheduled to come out once a year.
Marc Scott Zicree has written over 90 TV scripts, with credits on shows such as STAR TREK – THE NEXT GENERATION, DEEP SPACE NINE, BABYLON FIVE and SLIDERS. Zicree’s first book THE TWILIGHT ZONE COMPANION, a bestseller and American Book Award nominee, has been consistently in print for 19 years and is nearing a half-million sales.
Last year, during the 40th anniversary of THE TWILIGHT ZONE, Zicree was interviewed by dozens of radio and print outlets, including a full page spread in the L.A. TIMES, NPR's ALL THINGS CONSIDERED, MARKETPLACE, WEEKEND EDITION, and many others.
The cover is by Iain McCaig, designer of Darth Maul and Queen Amadala in STAR WARS - PHANTOM MENACE (and busy on the new STAR WARS film). Armin Shimerman -- Quark on DEEP SPACE NINE and Principal Skinner on BUFFY -- has agreed to do the reading of an unabridged audio version of MAGIC TIME for Books on Tape.
MAGIC TIME has been lauded by legendary science fiction writers Ray Bradbury and Orson Scott Card, Leonard Maltin, and many others:
"A great read! Even non-science fiction fans will find themselves caught up in this ambitious and exciting story. This is fantasy with heart and soul. I thoroughly enjoyed it." - Leonard Maltin
"Marc Zicree is a superb writer.” - Ray Bradbury
“The best new dose of magic to hit the world of fantasy literature in a long time." - Orson Scott Card
"Magic Time is a great book! A bold and original science fantasy that, by the end, creates a brand new genre all its own. Epic, believable and very, very cool. When's the movie coming out?" - Brannon Braga, co-creator of the new STAR TREK series ENTERPRISE
"The fuse has been lit on a fantastic new epic series. Vivid, imaginative, emotional – MAGIC TIME is a blockbuster summer movie pressed between book covers. I'd urge you to prepare yourself, BUT I FEAR THERE’S NO WAY YOU CAN!” - Rockne S. O’Bannon, creator FARSCAPE, ALIEN NATION
"Exceptionally well written, and the ‘veracity’ is terrific." - Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of DUNE: HOUSE CORRINO.
"MAGIC TIME takes up where THE STAND leaves off. Taut writing, interesting characters, fascinating situations -- they all make me eagerly look forward to the next installment in this saga”" - Harry Turtledove
