In Earth's future, when time travel has become possible, the Time Patrol is the top secret government agency that protects Earth's past, so that our history will not become corrupted by invaders from either our future or from other worlds. For many years, Murdock, Ashe, and other members of the Time Patrol have contended with threats to our time continuum, none more deadly than the alien Baldies, who hate other high-tech civilizations and want to destroy Earth. Evidence of time travel has been found in ruins dating to the ancient world...in the legendary realm of Atlantis. So Murdock, Ashe, Eveleen Riordan, and other Time Patrollers deck themselves out as foreign traders to discover whether something is amiss in Atlantis. They find that the Baldies are there, as evidenced by sophisticated, high-tech equipment, whose purpose it is impossible to fathom. As they try to derail the Baldies' plot, the Time Patrollers realize that time is running out on their mission when Atlantis is shaken by tremors that pre-age a cataclysm that may be the disaster that sank the fabulous island state. But they must be sure they act to preserve, not destroy, history-and if they're wrong, it'll be too late...for them and for Earth's future.

Throughout the civilized galaxy, in spacers' ports on the most far flung worlds, an ancient Terran legend echoes . . . about a race of magical beings called the Little People or the Fairy Folk. Some tales say they live in fabulous halls beneath the earth. Others describe them soaring through the air on shimmering wings. Many tales say they fled mankind-from the despoiling of the land, and the touch of cold iron. What if there is some truth behind the legends? What if such a race really exists, fleeing from world to world one step ahead of man's space ships and machines? Farree has to know; his earliest memories are of a life of near- slavery in a squalid port town-but he knows he was not born in that town, and the wings on his back are proof that the People may be more than mere legend. He has never seen another of his kind, but if they exist, he means to find them. Yet there are others equally determined to find the home of the People, others with more sinister reasons to go a-hunting . . . Tor Books presents a brand new novel by the master of adventure, about the most curious trio of friends in the civilized galaxy; Krip Vorlund, interplanetary Free Trader; Maelen, sorceress of the Moon of Three Rings, and Farree, the orphan boy with the mysterious, iridescent wings.
