Two present-day investigators race across time to escape malevolent aliens from the future and their terrible "gift" of immortality in this science fiction classic.
What is the price of eternal life? Secret agent Jay Corcoran is about to learn the answer when his investigation into an inexplicable disappearance carries him and journalist friend Tom Boone hundreds of years into the past. Corcoran and Boone's powerful extrasensory abilities lead them to an advanced transportation system through time and back to the bucolic 18th-century English countryside. There, they discover a family from the distant future that is hiding from the Immortals - an alien race that, many centuries on, is seducing human subjects with the promise of immortality. But the cost of life eternal is the corporeal self, and there is no place in the aliens' future for anyone unwilling to exist as mind alone.
Now that the Evans family's sanctuary has been breached, escape is the only answer - for Tom Boone and Jay Corcoran as well - and the only way out is forward...far forward. But racing through space and time can be a hazardous occupation, especially with monstrous beasts, killer robots, and Immortal body destroyers waiting at every juncture.
Über den Autor:
Clifford Donald Simak (* August 3, 1904 in Milville, Wisconsin, USA / ? April 25, 1988 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA) was a journalist and a science fiction writer. Simak was considered as one of the ?Grandmasters? of science fiction and he was honoured several times with awards for his contribution to science fiction literature.
Clifford D. Simak wrote continuously science fiction and fantasy for over 55 years (only few other writers worked as long as he did). He never was such a prolific writer like Isak Asimov or Robert Silverberg. Anyhow he managed to publish in these 55 years 28 novels and more than 120 short stories in the genres science fiction and fantasy ? and that avocational until his retirement in 1976. He earned his living as a reporter and editor of big newspapers in the American middle west.
There was a time when Simak was considered as one of the most valued SF-writers and there was hardly any standard literature on the history of science fiction which has not dedicate him a separate paragraph or even an own chapter even though he was never in fashion. He stood mostly in the shadow of his more famous colleagues

' A high-pitched, ragged screech came from behind the house, a caterwaul of fright. Boone started running toward the sound. But as he was rounding the corner, something going fast and hard struck him in mid-stride, tumbling him nose down into soft dirt. He pawed his face to wipe off the dirt and pulled himself to his feet. Emma was streaking for the traveller, with the others close behind. It was Emma, he thought, who had knocked him down. Then he saw what was chasing them. It was like a living spider web, more than twelve feet across, with pulses of energy throbbing across the tiny threads of the web. Behind the threads was a disk of some sort that might have been an eye. And he saw mechanical appendages.things like arms were already reaching out for him. Enid's voice shrieked at him, 'Boone!' Filled with a host of finely developed characters and truly amazing events, this fascinating tour-de-force of a novel, reveals the true craft and skill of a writer at the peak of his form.' 8vo - over 7Â¾" - 9Â¾" tall.
