I read a novel about 15 years ago, with time-traveling as the main topic. People can send their current consciousness to the past or the future inside them, with 2 kind of drugs respectively. With the future there were no problems, but when they change the past in the present you can ride down the road and see a bridge with sign "Bridge exists with probability 0.5".

Can someone remember this novel?

  • Is this Dune or one of its sequels? – b_jonas Oct 11 '12 at 12:37
  • "Now Wait for Last Year"? – DVK-on-Ahch-To Oct 11 '12 at 14:32
  • @DVK,"Now Wait for Last Year" - no, all actions performed during our timeline or near-future and "close-to-reality" setting. Basically it's not fiction with imaginative Universe or far-future setting... – sigrlami Oct 11 '12 at 15:01
  • And it's not: "An Age" by Brian Aldiss, "The House on the Strand" by Daphne du Maurier or "A Quantum Murder" by Greg Mandel – sigrlami Oct 11 '12 at 15:03
  • @b_jonas, definitely not Dune series – sigrlami Oct 11 '12 at 15:06

There is something similar to this concept on "Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said" by k dick but i'm not sure if it is the same

  • That was my first thought as well, after reading the title and first sentence. However, none of the rest of the details seem to match. – Beofett Nov 8 '12 at 17:48
  • @Pelirrojilla,@Beofett Sorry, not this one. In a story I'm trying to find, they are can go both ways, into the past and the future. I recall there was a young woman and a friend of protagonist, which tried to help him stop using drugs. But I don't remember finale... – sigrlami Nov 8 '12 at 18:20
