Ed Turner has arrived at his fiftieth high-school reunion for the class of ’68, only to learn that everyone there thinks he died fifty years ago. Surely there’s been a mix-up. But soon Ed comes to believe that he’s either delusional or entered an alternate reality, where another version of him did die at age eighteen.

As Ed becomes increasingly desperate to find a way out of this mind-bending nightmare, he is aided by a quirky high-school student who reads college physics books, a crusty old quantum physicist, and classmates at the reunion: including a psychiatrist, a pastor and a fisherman from Alaska. And he encounters Ellen, who he never dated but who could have been the love of his life.

But nothing can prepare Ed for the startling appearance of a late-arriving guest, who will challenge everything he thought was possible and force him to confront the tragedy that has shaped his life.

68 takes the reader into a mysterious realm that science is only now beginning to understand. Shadowed by the tumult of Ed’s graduation year—brutal war in Vietnam, political upheaval and great rock and roll—68 shows us that even in a new universe, the most important things never change.

The dead never attend 

their high school reunions.

But Ed Turner did.
