In Times Three, Science Fiction Grand Master Robert Silverberg presents a trio of ingenious variations on one of science fiction's most durable themes: time travel. These three novels, all of them prime Silverberg, approach that subject from a dizzying variety of perspectives. The result is a remarkable display of ingenuity, erudition, and sheer narrative power.

I would have been willing to buy it in paperback even, for a decent price. I did find a few copies on amazon, but they were all preowned paperbacks & price around $20.00----WHAT? I tried to order it@ both, Borders & B&N, to which they both replied " out of print, try a used book store ...more
This is three separate stories.

The introduction is actually a great read - it really gives interesting context for the stories. I guess it's the best introduction I've read...although most introductions to fiction are about boring "literature".
