Winnipeg, Canada - March 26, 2013 – Big Fizz, a digital and print publisher, is pleased to announce its partnership with RosettaBooks, the leading independent eBook publisher for the distribution of Time One: Discover How the Universe Began.
After challenging old thinking about forty-seven crucial scientific problems, Time One author Colin Gillespie solves forty-five of them and comes up with a strikingly simple answer to the most perplexing question of them all: How did the world begin?
“It’s the ultimate mystery, and it takes a fictional detective to solve it,” said Gillespie, a physicist turned lawyer turned author. A distinguished scientist, he has written more than 30 articles in international peer-reviewed journals on radiation biology, biophysics, neurophysiology and physics.
“RosettaBooks has published many books which have made a profound difference,” said Arthur Klebanoff, CEO of RosettaBooks. “We are privileged to publish Time One.”
Time One takes an iconoclastic look at contemporary physics, notably relativity, quantum mechanics and string theory. It connects the dots across centuries of philosophy, literature and religion. Yet despite its formidable scope and breadth, it remains accessible and even lighthearted.
The protagonist — a beach bum — takes his cues not only from the likes of Aristotle, Newton and Einstein but also from Lewis Carroll, Raymond Chandler and Frank Herbert, among many others. The most helpful if least likely source is the imaginary detective who becomes his sidekick. One of the book’s central (and most entertaining) premises is the detective’s use of science’s great stumbling blocks as clues to what happened before the Big Bang.
Time One is published in hardcover by Big Fizz Inc. and the eBook is distributed by RosettaBooks.
