Author Interview & Review: The Bureau of Time by Brett Michael Orr

Author Interview & Review: The Bureau of Time by Brett Michael Orr

You know what’s refreshing about The Bureau of Time? It doesn’t overcomplicate the time travel or the sci-fi. Timewalking, mutated genes and temporal shifts may be hard to grasp if it’s info dumped, but the whole concept behind the powers were integrated flawlessly into the book. New concepts are revealed on a need to know basis, and it doesn’t […]
