The Legion of Time

(1938)
(The first book in the Legion of Time series)
A novel by

 
 
Jack Williamson's Legion of Time, an early fifties classic sci-if yarn, is still one of the best reads in the genre. Williamson had a knack of involving the reader emotionally in his protagonist's plight, and I still have a deep fondness for this short novel, which I first read when a very young man. The pure affection Williamson had for his characters permeates his story, and it stands the test of time, which is, of course, the theme of the book. The love portions, brief and a bit overwrought, do not detract from the overall pace and development, and, frankly, were just fine when I was younger. You'll enjoy this one if you like the golden era of science fiction, or just if you like a good read. /THIS IS A NEW VINTAGE BOOK VINTAGE AT IT S BEST / THE BOOK IS BY A MASTER OF THE ART /GIFT QUALITY BOOK WITH COLLECTOR VALUE/ FAST SERVICE/ BEST INVESTMENT /BEST VALUE/

    

"The Legion of Time is an unparalleled classic of thrill packed excitement - possibly the greatest single adventure story in science-fiction history, a suspense-masterpiece of weird science and derring-do, like no other I've read. I deeply envy anyone who is reading it for the first time." - Lin Carter
