A World Out Of Time

After 200 years in cryosleep, Jaybee Corbell awakens to find that his mind has been downloaded to another body and he’s in servitude to a harsh future State.  After his escape via a spaceship, he traverses such vast distances–with accompanying time dilations–that he returns to Earth 3 million years later to discover a world wholly alien to the one he’d left.  A.E. van Vogt wrote, “This fantastic novel is a mix of Niven hard science and a time-travel concept to boggle the mind.”

“This fantastic novel is a mix of Niven hard science and a time-travel concept to boggle the mind…even after the last line the feeling remains of the story still rushing on into the magic distance of the universe.”
– A.E. van Vogt

“Niven’s intoxicating concepts, ideas, scientific extrapolations, and exotic hardware buffle up from every page.  Rich in imagination and astonishing in breath … will challenge the most sophisticated readers.”
