Jim Mulligan is about to find out that the reality of a do-over is vastly more complex than he ever imagined. Waking up from a car accident that should have killed him, he finds himself uninjured in his seventeen-year-old body, in the 1980’s. Seeking to rewrite his failed life, he is frequently thwarted by diversions, temporal paradoxes and his own character flaws. The Second Continuum is a story of one man’s second chance, the rewards and pitfalls of taking the other road, the weakness of moral relativism and the profound consequences of indulging personal desires with a gift meant to be used for the greater good. It asks the question “what-if” and shows that even attempts at doing right can go terribly wrong. A story of the practical challenges of involuntary time-travel: the inter-connectedness of every choice in life, how certain events shape a person, and how memory conflicts with fact.
