Time travel, the human genome, war, disaster, and the successes or failings from technological advancements all intermingle in Vladimir M. Mavar Jr’s debut science-fiction novel “Rubix Apocalypse.”

Alen Marinkovic is a new hire at EGSI Super Atom Smasher who, as a technician, has access to much of the equipment at the world's largest particle accelerator. With the help of his co-worker, Petra, they devise a plan to travel back in time by exploiting virtual genomics and the human genome. This exposes several tragedies and flaws in technology and humanity itself.

“The book is unique in that it presents an unconventional point of view,” said Mavar. “It mixes hopes, dreams, and fantasies that I had as a teenager, some of which have stayed with me to this very day.”

“Rubix Apocalypse” tells an intricate story of the impact that science and technology can have on individual lives and humanity. With the risks and complexities associated with time travel, the novel also presents aspects of surviving real-world situations and speculated outcomes.
