A Time and a Place: the Novel

Donovan Street Press presents A Time and a Place, a podcast version of Joe Mahoney's debut science fiction fantasy adventure, first published in 2017. 

The novel will be presented in its entirety, all twenty-seven chapters, in one week intervals, along with occasional related material.  

Joe Mahoney tells a deft tale. By turns droll and exuberant, this novel reels you into its strange world with as much pull as the portal that sends Barnabus through time and space....I greatly enjoyed this story for its array of characters, the romping plot and lyrical musings on what happens to free will when you hurtle through time and place.
