James Kennedy's sci-fi asks, 'Would you dare to know your death date?'

Imagine you could know the exact date and time of your death… would you want to know? In James Kennedy’s science fiction novel Dare to Know, that question is the foundation of his imagined world. It was inspired by his own background in physics and subsequent research into the historical intersection of science and philosophy (including the occult). I spoke with James Kennedy about his fascination with this combination, how he taps into his characters and more. Here’s our conversation.

Dare to Know by James Kennedy was published by Quirk Books.
