Annals of the Time Patrol
21-40, pref. single, mil. or tech. exp., good physique, for high-pay work with foreign travel. Engineering Studies Co., 305 E. 45, 9-12 & 2-6.
To Manson Emmert Everard, 30-year-old veteran, engineer, bachelor, outdoorsman--and decidedly independent spirit--it sounds like an ideal opportunity. Especially the foreign travel. But, as he steps into the office, he has no idea how foreign. For Manse Everard is being recruited for the Time Patrol.
Once accepted, Manse is ferried by time shuttle to the Academy, the Time Patrol training center set in the ancient Oligocene period. There he learns how time travel had been discovered in a turbulent far-future by the Nine--who saw in it sinister possibilities--and how the mysterious Danellians had stopped them. And how, to prevent abuse of the time lanes by the foolish and the greedy, the Time Patrol had been formed.
"Your work will mostly be within your own eras,"^' his class is told. "You will live ordinary lives, family and friends as usual--But you will always be on call!"
Returning to a cover job at the Engineering Studies Co., Manse finds the 20th century a springboard to danger, adventure and intrigue, contained here in five now-classic tales and two exciting new novellas. Join Manse as he rescues a 20th-century archeologist reluctantly enthroned in ancient Persia--sabotages Kublai Khan's 13th-century expedition to North America... returns New York to its rightful history... seeks to foil bandits holding the ancient city of Tyre for ransom --
Annals of the Time Patrol is an adventure lover's delight, a 2-in-1 volume including The Guardians of Time and Time Patrolman.
- 1983 Poul Anderson
