The universe had opened up for Blake Walker when he discovered that his world - our own Earth - was just one of hundreds ranked side by side on alternate timelines, each more strange and wondrous than the other, all coexisting at once, and all available to Blake Walker and the few natives of those other-Earths who could break the barriers between timelines.

But Blake's new

Recommends it for: Freunde klassischer 50iger Sci-Fi
Shelves: sci-fi
Der zweite Band der Crosstime-Serie. Den ersten habe ich noch nicht gelesen, aber der Einstieg fiel nicht schwer.
Es ist ein klassischer 50iger-Jahre Sci-Fi-Roman: Der Held ist so angelegt, dass vor allem der jugendliche Leser sich gut mit ihm identifizieren kann. Obwohl er vielen seiner Mitstreiter in Erfahrung und Können noch unterlegen ist, sind es seine Anlagen, die ihn dazu befähigen, die Welt zu retten. Dabei zeichnen ihn Mut und Intuition aus.

I was pretty young when I read this. I had read The Zero Stone and Moon of Three Rings by Andre Norton before this and really loved them. I hated this book and never read another book by Andre Norton...
I've definitely seen a paperback copy of this, though I don't have a copy at present. I don't remember what was in it, but my criticisms would likely be the same as those for the earlier books in the trilogy (Crossroads of Time & Quest Crosstime)--there's too much focus on the figures, and not enough focus on the ground.

Despite its name, this book has nothing to do with time travel. Rather it deals with alternate time-lines. Originally published in 1956, it is still a good adventure story with a sci-fi twist.

I think I read all the books in this series, but I don't seem to've retained any, either in my library or in memory. I gather this is the second book in what became a trilogy.
Despite being written almost 60 years ago the story still resonates with Norton's unique ability to project wonder and excitement.
Blake Walker's fantasy adventures continue on parallel Earths. A good and enjoyable read from my 1960's Andre Norton days.
I thought this one was a bit weak.

Alice Mary Norton always had an affinity to the humanities. She started writing in her teens, inspired by a charismatic high school teacher. First contacts with the publishing world led her, as many other contemporary female writers targeting a male-dominated market, to choose a literary pseudonym. In 1934 she legally changed her name to Andre Alice. The androgynous Andre doesn't really say "male" ...more
