Blurb – Dust Jacket Flaps
A brilliant new star in the science fiction firmament has created a far-future adventure that seems to occur in the present – or something like it. A soldier of fortune from another timestream, Eric Mathers, has signed on to help in a war among the European nations that resembles what in our timestream is called World War I. But this war continues in the 1970s, and involves an army called the American Colonial Forces – said to be subjects of Britain’s King George X!

But Eric Mathers learns soon enough that he’s in a vastly bigger battle. The Krith, a nonhuman race from a timestream near one end of the spectrum, are in the business of altering the flow of history in various streams in order to forestall a time-wide catastrophe that their hypertechnology has told them is inevitable. Or so they say. Now, in a commando mission that tests Eric’s extraordinary powers to the fullest, Eric encounters anti-Krith humans from the opposite end of the time spectrum who tell him that the whole rationale for his life as a soldier for the Krith is false. So they say.

On Eric’s resolution of this dilemma hangs the existence of all civilizations in all timestreams – hangs, in fact, the existence of existence itself. Or so it seems.

Richard C. Meredith is the author of We All Died At Breakaway Station, other novels, and highly acclaimed short fiction.
