In "Times Three", Science Fiction Grand Master Robert Silverberg presents a trio of ingenious variations on one of science fiction's most durable themes: time travel. These three novels, all of them prime Silverberg, approach that subject from a dizzying variety of perspectives. The result is a remarkable display of ingenuity, erudition, and sheer narrative power. -- cover, front flap.
In "Hawksbill Station", political prisoners from the 21st century are sent on a one-way journey to the late Cambrian era - a half billion years in the past. Their struggle to survive the privations of this bleak, almost lifeless world forms the centerpiece of a deeply affecting account of loss, exile, and repression. -- cover, front flap.
"Up The Line", by contrast, is a comic/erotic romp featuring Judson Daniel Elliott III, Time Courier and tour guide to the wonders of the past. While on a routine assignment in ancient Byzantium, Jud unexpectedly encounters his true Heart's Desire, and his well-ordered life slides inexorably into chaos. -- cover, front flap
In "Project Pendulum", identical twins Eric and Sean Gabrielson become the primary participants in the very first experiment in time travel. From a fixed point in time, they move by equidistant, steadily increasing arcs toward both the remote past and the unimaginable future. Their alternating viewpoints constitute a dazzling portrait of the wonders - and terrors - of a constantly evolving universe. -- cover, front & back flap.
