A traveler from the stars becomes the unwilling oracle for a Stone-Age people and the pawn in a primitive power struggle.

A disaffected sociologist discovers that each of his dreams for the perfect society contains the seed of a nightmare.

The War of Judgment has thrown mankind back into the Dark Ages, where the blue-eyed marauding Sky People and their victims face off in a struggle made desperate by the survival of twentieth-century technology.

Time travel provides one society with the perfect way to punish its criminals.
