The Paratime stories are a bit dated, but the concepts behind the paratime itself are fascinating. In some ways it reminds me of the shadows of Amber. Rough and ready stuff, written in a earlier time, yet still worth a read to those who wish to be well read in sci-fi.

Outdated

Stories written in a gentler time. Story line is very paternalistic . They do not hold up well in these modern times. Attempts to show the future fall flat.
