Barking Rain Press, publishers of The Chronocar has shut down. The book has disappeaed from retail outlets. Only used and third party leftover copies are available (collectors’ items!). While this is sad news, it is not the end of The Chronocar. An audiobook is on the way, and there is an excellent chance that paperback and ebook versions will be available again soon.

Imagine being born the son of a slave with the mind of a genius. That was Simmie Johnson in the years following the Civil War. After a perilous escape from lynch mobs in Mississippi, he manages to earn a PhD in physics at Tuskegee, and in his research, discovers the secret of time travel. He develops a design for a time machine, called a Chronocar, but the technology required to make it work does not yet exist.
Fast forward a hundred and twenty-five years. A young African AmericanIllinois Techstudent in Chicago finds Dr. Johnson’s plans and builds a Chronocar. He goes back to the year 1919 to meet the doctor and his beautiful daughter, Ollie, who live in Chicago’s Black Belt, now known as Bronzeville. But, he has chosen an unfortunate time in the past and becomes involved in the bloodiest race riot in Chicago’s history.
