Solaris to publish near-future time travel novel by R. A. Sinn

Solaris is thrilled to announce the acquisition of A Second Chance for Yesterday by R. A. Sinn, a near-future science fiction novel for fans of The Time Traveler’s Wife and This is How You Lose the Time War, for publication in August 2023.

Nev Bourne works for tech company Qbito whose brain implants can rewind time by five seconds. When the new upgrade she’s been finalising moves her back in time each day, towards her miserable youth and inevitable end, her only hope for help is Airin, a nonbinary hacker from her past.

World All Languages Rights were acquired by Jim Killen from Jennie Goloboy at the Donald Maas Agency.

Author R. A. Sinn on the acquisition:

“We feel like we’ve found a true home at Rebellion, which is a champion of the intelligent, diverse, creative stories that most inspire us.”

Acquiring Editor Jim Killen:

“A Second Chance for Yesterday is a novel that feels very personal. This is a time travel novel that is both musings about quantum entanglement and a story of a woman’s journey of self-discovery and reflection on her life. It’s intriguing, heartfelt and bittersweet. And when I reached the end my first thought was that I wanted more.”

R. A. Sinn is the pseudonym for sister-and-brother writing team Rachel Hope Cleves and Aram Sinnreich. Rachel is a historian and Aram is a futurist. Despite their past disagreements about who’s trespassing onto whose side of the back seat, Rachel and Aram have always enjoyed making up stories together, and playing inside of the worlds they’ve built.
