Over at BuzzFeed, Andrew Liptak included Michael J. Sullivan’s Hollow World among his list of 33 SF/F Books Coming Out In April 2014 That You Need To Read.
What it’s about: Ellis Rogers is a seemingly ordinary man who is about to embark on an extraordinary journey. All his life he has played it safe and done the right thing. But when he is faced with a terminal illness, Ellis is willing to take an insane gamble. He’s secretly built a time machine in his garage, and if it works, he’ll face a utopian world that challenges his understanding of what it means to be human, what it takes to love, and what the cost of paradise really might be.
Ellis could find more than a cure for his disease; he might find what everyone has been searching for since time has begun — but only if he can survive the Hollow World.
Why you should buy it: Sullivan’s done a number of epic fantasy novels recently, and this novel looks to be a bit of a change for him, with an interesting character set to travel to some interesting places.
