it was ok

Mildly diverting, with honest pulpy pleasure, but very weakly concluded. Also very much of its time, an era of science fiction when real men wore jumpsuits and lived behind computer consoles, and women were furniture. Note to aspiring authors-- when you set out to write a book about a time-travel battle of wits with unstoppable murder machines, you can end it by having the human heroes do something suitably clever, or you can end it with a sad deus ex machina. Don't choose the sad deus ex machina.
