"... a complex, thoughtful story of time travel, time paradoxes and time police, considered by some critics to be his best work." - John Clute / Malcolm J. Edwards, SFE (online). A fine copy in very good dust jacket with wear and shallow chipping along top and bottom edges, a sticker stain to spine panel, and a bit of age tanning but no show though on the outer surface. (#142674).
