The atomic era and the age of Napoleon — linked by the Time Tunnel

Back cover text

The Time Tunnel

One end was in 1964 — the other in 1804. People could go both ways. So could ... things. For instance, brand-new "antiques" for the 20th century, and marvels of modern industry for the Napoleonic era.

But you had to be careful — because what would happen to "now" if you did something in 1804 that changed history? It was unthinkable.

Unfortunately, it happened...

Murray Leinster, the Old Master of science fiction, presents a time-travel novel with a twist — an altogether new treatment of a favorite topic.

Commuters in time

The Scientist
who feared to meddle with the past — until he was trapped in it

The young lovers
feeling an impossible present

The merchant
greedy for fat pickings from two centuries of customers

The burglar
who had a 160-year lead on the cops

The playboy
who watched in horror as his ancestor died — childless!

The ingenious paradoxes of time-travel and the spirit of high adventure mingle to make a lively and fascinating new novel.
