Synopses & Reviews
There's a secret in the basement of the engineering building. Three travelers, claiming to be from a utopia six thousand years hence, are helping Dr. Gustafson and his graduate staff invent a time transport. Their stated goal: to stop war and secure a peaceful future.
Overloaded and overtaxed, the transport experiments start to go wrong. Dreadfully wrong. What the professors don't know is that the Travelers have their own plans for the machine. And their own secrets....
The future isn't peaceful. The past is not the past. And the machine in the engineering building has everything to do with an unimaginable war.
"Drake's grasp of large-scale action, as well as small dramas, makes him a superb storyteller." --Library Journal
"Drake, a Vietnam vet who served in the Blackhorse Regiment, uses prose as cold and hard as the metal alloy of a tank. . . . In his depiction of combat, Drake rivals Crane and Remarque." --Publishers Weekly
Mysterious visitors from six thousand years in the future offer to help scientists build a time machine, but strange accidents mar their progress. Reissue.
