What's Next?

Journey to 2125

Let's take a hard-science look into this next century, together with the MacGyver family

Journey to 2125

Confidential! (A sneak peek...coming soon)

I thought that Unfettered Journey was my last speculative fiction novel, with a hard-science setting in the year 2161. That debut novel was more philosophical and spiritual in theme (as evidenced by several of the 14 book awards that it won). Given its realistic world building, fans clamored for more details, especially asking, "how did humanity get from here to there?" They convinced me to try again.

That's the impetus for Journey to 2125. First, it is a human, personal story with characters you will love. Second, this novel provides a hard-science view of how the next century – between 2025 and 2125 – might really play out. Forget the hyped tech Utopias proclaimed by many, and the apocalyptic hellscapes depicted by others. Let's imagine how it might actually happen, and then focus on what we can do together to make our future the best we can.

MacGyver Family Tree


Journey to 2125:

One Century, One Family, Rising to Challenges

It’s 2125 when a long-separated grandson suddenly arrives on his doorstep looking for answers. Max MacGyver retells their family story and secrets, revealing a century of challenges that they've faced. Journey to 2125 is one family’s touching story, across generations, of adventure, rivalry, loss, survival, and resilience.

At its heart, Journey to 2125 is the story, transpiring over a single day, of a young boy and his grandfather. Why did his parents decide to move to the Commune? What family secrets will his grandfather disclose?

This is the story of a family facing our future. A small boy escapes war in Asia. A young woman flees catastrophe driven by climate change in Africa. Family members build technology companies, and others deal with the trauma of jobs lost to automation. A young couple fight for privacy and democracy. Lives are positively transformed by biomedical science and threatened by it.

Journey to 2125 is simultaneously the story of how humankind might collectively weather the tragedy and chaos that we can expect from accelerating change. It is a hard-science tour of our future. What will it feel like to live during these next one hundred years? Take this journey with Max MacGyver and his grandson, as they reveal their family history, and the road ahead for you and yours.
