Kevin Cord couldn't have known that a beer run would lead him to his doppelganger, Chan Dahl, dying in the street. Kevin is mistaken for Chan and is abducted to face trial in the future for crimes he didn't commit. Kevin's troubles are just beginning.

A cool premise, not really meant to be scrutinized. Too many questions pop up if you do. Kevin holds up fantastic under the stresses he is exposed to; I certainly couldn't have done it.

Not my favorite from Mr. Fox, but recommended none the less.

Pulp fiction! Found this little gem in a used book store in Spokane. I was looking for something quick, adventurous and sci-fi, and this definitely fits the bill. (And only $2 at that).

I found out later that the author, Gardner Fox, was a DC Comics writer and is credited for creating The Flash. This makes sense, as the book is 100% plot, moves super fast, and could easily be a comic book. In fact, I'd LOVE to read this as a comic. It'd also make a fun B-Movie.

I gave this two stars because--whi

The Hunter Out of Time by Gardner F. Fox (1965) has the best opening hook I've seen: "I saw myself dying on the other side of the street.

But within a few chapters it deteriorates into a trite, 1930s style space opera, the protagonists chasing and being chased by the antagonist back and forth through time. For a time

Pulp Sci-Fi at it's best. This twisted time travel tale reminded me of the writing style of Lionel Fanthorpe. Which certainly is not meant as an insult to Gardner Fox, whose literary achievements speak for themselves.

Pedestrian golden-age sci-fi, with a time traveling twist.
