TV Book of the Day
FlashForward
is a science fiction novel by Canadian author Robert J. Sawyer first published in 1999. The novel is set in a fictionalized year 2009. At CERN, the Large Hadron Collideraccelerator is performing a run to search for the Higgs boson. The experiment has a unique side effect: the entire human race loses consciousness for about two minutes. During that time, nearly everyone sees themselves in the future (by about 21 years). Each individual experiences their own future through the senses of their future self. This "flashforward" results in countless deaths and accidents involving vehicles, aircraft, and any other device needing human control at the time of the experiment. The novel inspired the 2009 television seriesFlashForward.
(from wikipedia)

Even though the series was cancelled after it's first season, which is just wrong IMO, Mr. Sawyer had nothing but nice things to say:
"I’ll never forget this past year, and I thank everyone involved — but especially Jessika Borsiczky, Brannon Braga, David S. Goyer, and Vince Gerardis — for making it possible. It was a wonderful ride." - SF Writer his Blog
