Place for blurb text, lots of lovely blurb text about the third book in the "Island in the Sea of Time" saga.

Perhaps the blurb should mention that this book is the sequel to the widely acclaimed "Island in the Sea of Time" and "Against the Tide of Years", and perhaps the blurb should also give some teasers about the contents of the book.



To Alfred Bruce Stirling - who deserves all the blame for this. Or at least half of it.



Many thanks to the cadets and staff of the Coast Guard Academy, New London, CT, for their hospitality and interest; special thanks to Professor Faye Ringle of the Academy; and to the officers and crew of Eagle, for the guided tour.

My apologies her captain for the unspeakable things I did to his cabin.
