The sun and moon always shine, the basic laws of physics are the same.

Living among the trolls as he recovers, Joshua develops a deeper understanding of this collective-intelligence species and its society.

He discovers that some older trolls, with capacious memories, act as communal libraries, and live on a very strange Long Earth world, in caverns under the root systems of trees as tall as mountains. We cultivate the cosmos to maximize the opportunities for life and joy in this universe, and to prepare for new universes to come.

For all the time you have spent wondering what you would do if you could time travel, have you considered what the consequences of changing history might be? So you kill Hitler, would you fool fate, or would another fanatic simply step up to take his place?

Would a simple change of the past snowball into a catastrophe in the future? When Johna young man of physics with an insatiable curiosity for scienceis accidentally given the opportunity to travel in time, he must face the questions that this ability presents to him.

He must ask himself what he should do with this power. With the power to connect to the past and alter the future, John can change his lifeand the course of historyforever.

But when he takes action, the outcome is far from what he expected. Written into Johns legacy are the words, History is the sum of all known knowledge, including the forbidden knowledge of change. Humankind's best hope of survival against the powerful Teconean Empire, the Federation Defense System, is nearly complete.

A potent new energy generator in the shape of an obelisk is the last key element needed to complete the FDS.

Stryker discovers that the gilded obelisk is lost in time. The only hope for survival is to send someone back to nineteenth century California to retrieve it before the Teconean invasion is launched. An aficionado of the Old West, Stryker eagerly volunteers to make the trip.

Fitting into the nineteenth century has its challenges, and to make matters worse, Teconean spies have infiltrated deep into the ranks of the Space Corps. The race through time and space is on.
