Day #3 of Seven Marty Essen Books in Seven Days, featured in order of publication. After writing two nonfiction books, I switched to fiction. Time Is Irreverent is both hilarious and irreverent, and it introduced me to the concept of “review bombing.” Despite open-minded people loving the novel, conservative Christians (many who never even read the book) posted vindictive one-star reviews in-mass in an attempt to tank the book. Apparently, their version of God was too weak to tank the book himself.

Ultimately, Time Is Irreverent hit #1 in multiple categories on Amazon, and to this day I’m so proud of this novel. If I had only been alive to write it 2,000 years ago, our primary deities today would be my protagonists, Marty Mann and Nellie Dixon, and there would be peace on Earth.

“Time Is Irreverent is a delightful romp that scores solid satirical points about religion, human nature, sex, the Trump administration, and a great deal more.”—Tom Flynn, editor, Free Inquiry Magazine

“Highly recommend. It’s fun, clever, cool, witty, surprising, political, sexy, everything a sci-fi book should be. And as someone who’s also written a sci-fi-time-travel-humor novel, I love that Marty Essen doesn’t break the time rules he sets up from the start—so many sci-fi authors do, and as far as I’m concerned, that’s just lazy writing. Not the case here! Yes, his characters learn and adapt and grow, but the foundation of his rules remain intact always. To repeat: fun, witty, surprising, sexy. Highly recommend.”—Jeff Abugov, writer, producer, director

“Ironic, original, hysterically funny, deftly crafted, and an impressively entertaining read from first page to last.”—Midwest Book Review
