The End Of Eternity

By Asimov, Isaac




The End of Eternity by Isaac Asimov is a science fiction novel, with mystery and thriller elements, on the subjects of time travel and social engineering. The themes are very different from most of his robot and 'space opera' stories, and take a clever approach to time paradoxes. Some people consider it his best work, or at least one of the best. (This view is recorded in the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction. ) As of April 2009, a film adaptation—to be directed by Kevin Macdonald—is planned.

An excellent copy of a very early printing of this science fiction classic.<br><br> "Andrew Harlan is an Eternal -- a member of a highly exclusive organization. The Eternals are Technicians, carefully selected and highly trained, whose job it is to range through past and present Centuries, monitoring and, when necessary, altering time's myriad cause-and-effect relationships to smooth out the rough spots in the long and sometimes tragic history of mankind.<br> Despite the lifelong training and rigorous discipline of his organization Harlan meets a non-Eternal woman and falls victim to a timeless phenomenon -- love. And then he seeks to use the awesome techniques of the Eternals to twist time to suit their purposes..."<br><br></b></font> Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile.
