      The Chronoliths (Book): Wilson, Robert Charles: One day in Thailand, 21st-century slacker Scott Warden witnesses an impossible event: the violent appearance of a foot stone pillar. Its arrival collapses trees for a quarter mile around its base. It appears to be composed of an exotic form of matter. And the inscription chiseled into it commemorates a military victory sixteen . The Chronoliths is a striking if occasionally bleak tale of time and causality that opens in the very near future. The world is going straight to hell, with social and economic crises nearly everywhere/5(26).

Scott returns to Minneapolis, divorces, and finds work as a programmer; he runs into Sue Chopra, a genius physicist he knew at college, now studying the Chronoliths.

She’s convinced that the key involves temporal feedback in which the future creates the past, and that meetings and occurrences that appear coincidental aren’t.
