(Volume One)
by William R. Burkett, Jr.,
$3.99 ebook, $14.95 paperback
If the armadillo hadn’t crossed the moonlit road at that specific moment in 1967, the newlywed couple would not have died in a car crash.

He would not have been taken out of Time to be trained for a lethal mission by the last, best leader of the Terran Service. But the rule of unintended consequences governs. Cascading anomalies proliferated around that moment on the moonlit highway and the orderly flow of Time would never be the same … if it ever was to start with.

The battle to liberate Earth is fought by those few with the aid of a vengeful ghost called “Gremper” by the aliens. The action is fast and furious, while the genius general of the invading fleet goes slowly insane at the disruption of his well-laid plans. “A natural-born storyteller,” said bestselling author Frank G. Slaughter. A classic reprint of a sci-fi masterpiece.
