Publisher's Summary

A scientist makes two stunning discoveries: First, his lost soul mate is alive in an alternate universe, and second, the Earth is doomed.

Science prodigies Lije (Elijah) Grant and Laura Bess Austin have been soul mates since they were kids. But as Laura Bess is flying off to college, the plane goes down and all aboard are lost. Lije is devastated; the love of his life is gone.

Lije grows up to become an astrophysicist, living a minimal existence, tracking boring space junk, night after tedious night at a radar station. Then one evening, he notices a satellite suddenly veering off course, disappearing into deep space.

Investigating, he discovers that it is the work of a small black hole, and it is coming closer. The Earth has maybe two weeks before Armageddon.

And that's when Laura Bess walks up to Lije in a coffee shop and says "Hello, stranger."

The future just isn't what it used to be; neither is the past.

    "Engaging story--flawlessly performed!"
    What made the experience of listening to Elsewhen the most enjoyable?

    The story begins with young children who are brilliant and best friends. I cared about what happened to them later in life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed getting to know "Lij"--Elijah--the main character. As gifted as his best friend, he was more fully rounded as a character.


    What about Mil Nicholson’s performance did you like?

    Mil Nicholson's pronunciations are perfect, and she moves smoothly and consistently from character to character, selecting voices that match the people who are speaking as I see them in my imagination.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was so relieved when...well, but that would be telling! No spoilers! Indeed, there were points in the story at which I came to care more about the characters, and saying anything else would ruin the fun for the next reader!


    Any additional comments?

    I have not read or heard a book by Gary Bullock before and wondered what it would be like. Mr. Bullock is clearly very well-read, and his syntax is excellent. He creates what the late John Gardner called "a vivid and continuous dream." I think he's got real promise and I hope he keeps writing. I will certainly read his other works--if and when I find any!
