"The Traveler" is the story of Tee, a 12-year-old girl who, every day after school, works as an apprentice in her father's black smith shop. From him she learns how to weld, forge, and make beautiful things out of ordinary pieces of steel and metal. When her dad has a stroke, and lying on his death bed, he whispers one last inaudible word to his daughter. Following it, Tee eventually discovers a notebook hidden inside his workshop. In it, she finds detailed instructions on how to build a time machine.
She longs to see her father again, and she wants to honor his last wish to build the machine. But deep down Tee knows that there is no such thing as traveling through time. Reluctantly, she begins to build what she believes is simply a means, set up by her father, to ease her grief and help her get through the darkest time of her young life. She doesn't know yet that her father's last gift to her will change her life in the most profound way.
"Stefan Bolz's writing is not merely inventive but lyrical, almost mystical. You can't help but fall under the spell of the worlds he creates, the characters he gives life to. He's one of that vanguard of authors bringing speculative fiction into a new silver age." (Samuel Peralta, award-winning author and creator of The Future Chronicles)
