Many Mansions – Bill’s newest sci-fi novel continues where the tale left off in A Button in the Fabric of Time
“In my Father’s house are many mansions,” says the Bible. In this engrossing sequel to A Button in the Fabric of Time, a 21st century engineer travels into the 31st century. There he meets and marries a beautiful woman, and together they work to produce a heaven on earth where people never grow old and live far into the future, in a world free from want and pain. The land, air, and water are clean and pure. To save the land for productive use, people live in cities of glass floating on the ocean. Each city contains 40 levels, and people travel in transportation devices at the speed of thought. Robots do the work, but people supervise the robots. The engineer and his wife help bring people who have already died into the future to populate other planets. In the 31st century, people age, but don’t grow old; therefore, everyone is beautiful and looks 25.
