The mysteries and paradoxes of Time have been the basis of many science fiction stories, and the reason is obvious.
What vast possibilities suggest themselves to the imagination at thought of a glimpse of tomorrow!
What powers would be gained by one who could see the future at will!
To the Tyrant of Time the future is an open book, to be read at will -- and the knowledge thus made available to his use permits him to be a tyrant in every sense of the word.
How this knowledge and power is used in age after successive age forms the body of the tale.
In addition to the long title story, this volume contains a selection of the author's shorter science fiction.
