Anderson, Poul


The Time Patrol

The Time Patrol Lowest new price: $11.99
Lowest used price: $0.01
List price: $21.95
Author: Poul Anderson

Forget minor hazards like nuclear bombs. The discovery of time travel means that everything we know, anyone we know, might not only vanish, but never even have existed. Against that possibility stand the men and women of the Time Patrol, dedicated to preserving the history they know and protecting the future from fanatics, terrorists, and would-be dictators who would remold the shape of reality to suit their own purposes. But Manse Everard, the Patrol's finest temporal trouble-shooter, bears a heavy burden. The fabric of history is stained with human blood and suffering which he cannot, must not do anything to alleviate, lest his tampering bring disastrous alterations in future time. Everard must leave the horrors of the past in place, lest his tampering-or that of the Patrol's opponents, the Exaltationists-erase all hope of a better future, and instead bring about a future filled with greater horrors than any recorded by past history at its darkest and most foul.

Three novels and three novellas together for the first time in volume six of multiple Hugo- and Nebula-award-winning Poul Anderson’s Technic Civilization science fiction adventure epic. In the twilight of the Terran Empire, one secret agent stands ready with the grit and wits to save a corrupt empire by hook or by crook.

In the twilight of the Terran Empire, one man exists who can save his empire—and civilization itself—by hook or by crook, whether his “betters” appreciate his efforts or not. Flandry is both a James Bond style agent of empire, and agent-provocateur of change. Flandry is a heroic but tragic figure: a man who knows too much history, who knows that battle and scheme as he will the Long Night of Empire is approaching. If that darkness is not to fall in his own lifetime, must do what he can. And anyone, human or alien, who gets in his way, will most definitely regret it. 

Contains three complete Flandry novels collected in one volume for the first time:  The Plague of Masters, Go Home, Hunters of the Sky Cave and A Knight of Ghosts and Shadows.  This is the sixth entry in the seven-volume complete cycle of The Technic Civilization Saga.

For millions of years, the part of the galaxy containing our solar system has been moving through a vast force field whose effect has been to inhibit "certain electromagnetic and electrochemical processes" and thus certain neurotic functions. When Earth escapes the inhibiting field, synapse speed immediately increases, causing a rise in intelligence, which results in a transfigured humanity reaching for the stars, leaving behind our earth to the less intelligent humans and animal lifeforms. A transcendent look at the possible effects of enhanced intelligence on our planet.

Author: Poul Anderson

The award-winning author of Harvest of Stars brings back hero Anson Guthrie in a story about an Earth, now dependent on technology and ruled by machine intelligence, where Guthrie must embark on a journey to save the last freedoms known to humankind.

Poul Anderson marks the 50th year of his science fiction writing career with the conclusion of his Harvest of Stars series (Boat of a Million Years, Harvest of Stars, The Stars are Also Fire, Harvest the Fire). While the writing is leisurely, the action bounces between the solar system and the stars as Anson Guthrie returns to action once again (or at least his downloaded consciousness does). It seems the artificial intelligence that half support and more than half control the Terran system are hiding something from humanity, and Guthrie is determined to find out what that is.
