Biography of Eddie Upnick, author of Time Will Tell, Lonely Heroes, Future Tense, and 2052
Eddie Upnick was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1953. He graduated from Benjamin Cardozo High School in Bayside, New York in 1971. In 1976, he graduated from New Paltz State University of New York with a BA in Anthropology. He worked as a joke writer for Rodney Dangerfield, among others, and as a situation comedy writer off and on between the years 1975-1996. He invented Super Chess which Games Magazine declared one of the top ten strategy games of the year in 1987. He has been married since 1981 and also shares his home with two parrots.
While on vacation in Antigua, in 1995, Upnick met Sidney Dowse, an Englishman who was one of the men who had escaped from Sagan, the prison camp portrayed in the 1963 movie, The Great Escape. Dowse had information regarding World War Two that was not in any history book. After days of prodding from Upnick, Dowse reluctantly related events from his own recollections, as well as those he himself had been told by his associate, Stewart Menzies. (Menzies, the head of MI-6 during World War II had daily meetings with Winston Churchill.) At Dowse’ request, Upnick promised that he would not repeat anything that had been revealed to him, until after Sidney’s death. Mr. Dowse died in 2008.
Dowse’s incredible recollections inspired the writing of Time Will Tell, Future Tense and the final book in the trilogy, 2052. Facts, lost to history, are woven into these stories. Upnick reveals that Winston Churchill actually knew the date and time of the planned attack on Pearl Harbor and what he decided to tell Roosevelt. Did time travelers help the allies win the war? Menzies thought so.
Future Tense, the sequel to Time Will Tell, takes place twenty years after TWT ends, during the years 2022-2028. In Future Tense, Putin’s assassination triggers the Russian mob’s takeover of the country. Meanwhile, in the United States, 50 trillion dollar deficits cause forty states to attempt to secede from the union. The heavy debt-load of the other ten states threatens to bring America to its knees economically. Yet, these stories are only a small part of Future Tense, as our planet is under threat from an impending Ice Age. Finally, aliens both friendly and deadly enter the picture as the story moves forward.
The final book in the series, 2052, continues the adventure of the next generation players as Upnick delves deeper into Earth’s possible futures. Threads of truth can be found throughout all three of these reality-based science fiction books. Has future history already happened? 2052’s shocking ending may answer that question.
Lonely Heroes the fourth book and the Time Will Tell screenplay are complete as well.
