A Time and a Place

“ENTERTAINING, CHAOTIC ADVENTURE.” ~ Publishers Weekly. Barnabus J. Wildebear is an ordinary guy who promises his sister on her deathbed that he’ll keep her teen-aged son Ridley safe. He fails. First, they don’t get along. Then a beautiful stranger lures the boy through a trans-dimensional portal to help battle an ancient evil. To protect Ridley, Barnabus must follow him through the portal to the strange and dangerous dimensions beyond, into the fog of alien war… An ill-timed sneeze deposits Barnabus in the past, hours before his sister’s tragic demise. Barnabus seizes the chance to change history and save his beloved sister. By so doing, maybe he can make all his terrible problems go away. But can it really be that easy?

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.

~Anna-Liza Kozma, Goodreads
