In episode 122 of the SF Signal Podcast, Patrick Hester sits down to chat with Nick Hurwitch and Phil Hornshaw, co-authors of the new book, So You Created A Wormhole (Berkley Trade; April 3, 2012; ISBN: 9780425245583; $15.00).
About the Book:
SO YOU CREATED A WORMHOLE is a hilarious blend of science fiction and science fact. It is the world’s first and only field manual to the possibilities of time travel. With self-proclaimed nerds Hornshaw and Hurwitch as guides, readers can now learn the do’s and don’ts—and pros and cons—before embarking on an adventure through time and space. SO YOU CREATED A WORMHOLE gives readers a firm grasp of the history and science of time travel, preparing you in every imaginable—or unimaginable—way to face whatever comes your way. It is the ultimate guide to preventing a horrible death or being trapped forever in another time or alternate reality
PHIL HORNSHAW moonlights as a technology blogger when he hangs up his lab coat. A sometimes fanatical consumer of television and film as well as part-time payer of attention to Science, he has had a known fascination with time travel and its horrific effects on the human mind and body all his life. He currently lives in Los Angeles, alternating between conducting chrono-displacement experiments on Nick Hurwitch and writing about playing video games on his cellular telephone.
NICK HURWITCH read his first book on theoretical physics at age twelve and ever since, has been both fascinated by the Universe’s mysteries and content to let someone else figure that crap out. He is now a writer and filmmaker living in early-twenty-first-century Los Angeles. The imagination is his metaphysical realm of choice and although he technically lacks the credentials of a time scientist, he is happy to lend said imagination to the world of quantum physics. He hopes that publishing this book will mean no future time travelers will have to relive his awful experience in Budapest, 1903.
