Back cover text

Did you ever hear of The Inter-Time Society for Psychological Adjustments? Well, neither had Morton Cargill when he accidently killed a girl in an auto crash. But a year later that very girl turned up, apparently alive, and announced that the mysterious society had condemned him to death!

Cargill's astounding adventures began when he escaped the execution chamber to find himself in the far future. Three conflicting societies were hunting for him for use in their own desperate schemes. There were the Floaters, a nation of aerial vagabonds. There were the Tweeners, who dreamed of world conquest. And finally, interwoven through everything, there were the sinister figures of the Shadow Men — supermen without visible substance.

Van Vogt's rarest novel is worthy of the author of Slan and The World of Null-A.
