An Author’s Note on page 236 of Vestiges of Time indicates that the text of the three volumes was revised for the 1979 reprints “to eliminate some of the errors, inconsistencies, and redundancies that existed in the previous editions.”

This book is dedicated to the memory of H. Beam Piper and to the Paratime Police, to Verkan Vall, to Tortha Karf, to Hadron Dalla, and to all those who guard the multiple worlds

Blurb – Lower Cover
From far in the future comes a hideous warning of destruction.

But the message is not clear, and the result is a mad scramble to change the present – all possible presents – in order to avoid the future. For the recipients of the message are not humans but Kriths, lizardlike beings from a parallel Timeline.

Using machines that move sideways in time, a band of dedicated mercenaries and Krith leaders cut a wide swath through countless Timelines. It is a brutal and bloody struggle that has no end – until one of their strongest fighters begins to ask questions the Kriths would rather not answer.
