1 Review
Worlds of differing probabilities and the constant search for immortality are the twin themes of this mind-toppling story. Expanding the enigmas of time, Van Vogt carries the reader to the furthermost edges of past and future and outwards to a place where time loses all meaning.

Perhaps the most complex time travel book I've ever read. I recommend for those who like complicated plots. It has a nice twist at the end. Read full review
