PRLog - Oct. 21, 2011 - YUMA, Ariz. -- Writer/Director Robert H. Gwinn has obtained the screen rights to the science fiction book series “The Timeliner Trilogy”. Written by author Richard C. Meredith in 1973 and published shortly after Meredith’s death in 1979 by Playboy Press the three novels were well received at the time by critics but were virtually lost to readers over the years. Meredith only published six novels before his death and didn’t have time to build a large following, however, those who did read his works have been loyal to his stories for more than thirty years.

The writer/director recently completed the second book to script adaptation and is eager to finish the third installment. Gwinn says that Meredith was ahead of his time is regards to the science. The TImeliner Trilogy deals with a paramilitary group that travels across parallel universes, referred to as “Timelines”
“There is a lot of real science in this science fiction.” Gwinn told us. “Meredith was writing about pan dimensional crossroads and quantum physics long before that sort of thing was understood by the general public.” He went on to say that even now the theoretical science of cross-line travel is going to be a difficult thing to translate to film and that he is working hard to avoid making this hard core science fiction epic into anything cheesy or campy.
