"All hands--abandon present!"

The Navy hadn't believed Leutenant Commander Joseph Rate and the crew of the yawl Alice when they had tried to explain their absence-without-leave as a freak display of time travel--and they hadn't believed Rate's warnings about how dangerous such travel could be. Instead, they had crippled the careers of good men for almost ten years, just lon

This book serves as a sequel to The Ship That Sailed the Time Stream, but is, alas, nowhere near as good. Both books move about in history — in the “time stream” — but the first one seems less scattershot. This second novel needed another draft. The action got confusing in Byzantium. The goings-on there — with the Council of Nicea, of all things —were not described well. There is cleverness towards the very end, but it seemed rushed, ill thought-out. Some elements were not properly prepared.

The book brings some closure to some plot threads started in Edmondson's more well-known 1965 novel The Ship That Sailed the Time Stream, but without as much humor. It is thus a good follow-up, but barely stands on its own.

This is, apparently, the sequel to "The Ship that Sailed the Time Stream" - wch I haven't read but I suspect I wd've enjoyed this more if I had. I don't think I've enjoyed any of Edmondson's solo bks as much as the 2 I've read that he coauthored w/ C. M. Kotlan ("The Cunningham Equations" & "The Black Magician") so maybe I shd seek out more by Kotlan to read.

"To Sail the Century Sea" has its time travel centered story as an excuse to make the plot somewhat hodge-podged & I reckon it works but I
