The Depths of Time

"Allen neets his usual high standard in the far-future combination of speculative hard science, social sf, and pure adventure."  Booklist

"Mind-boggling ideas spice up an absorbing puzzle."  Kirkus Reviews

"A well-rendered hero and a maddeningly provocative ending." Publisher's Weekly
Time is of the essence when you're stranded in the future -- and Humanity is running out of time! The settled universe is filled with terraformed worlds linked by timeshafts--temporal wormholes in deep space. These  timeshafts are the only way to travel the vast distances etween the stars. As passengers and crew are placed in cold sleep, their ships spend decades crossing the interstellar void -- traveling the wormholes and arriving at their destinations just days after leaving home. The Chronologic Patrol is charged with guarding these timeshaft wormholes and preventing time paradoxes at all costs. But one critical mission ends in disaster. As ships carrying relief supplies to a crippled planet approach a timeshaft, they are mercilessly set upon by mysterious Invader, Anton Koffield tries to stop the invasion by destroying the timeshaft. Marooned eighty years in the future, he lives as a cursed figure, the villain who killed a world. And his odyssey through time has only just begun....
