Edward Davis, a rookie of the Time Service, has already made several successful jumps to the past. Now he is given his most important mission. *** Two members of the Service have disappeared in ancient Egypt and Edward Davis's assignment is to locate and rescue them. *** But is he ready for all that Egypt has to offer and for the surprising truths he discovers as he explores this ancient land of myths and mysteries-truths that jeopardize his own mission and return back to the future?

Edward Davis travels through time to ancient Egypt in search of a pair of renegade time travelers in the latest novella by sf veteran Silverberg. Surrounded by the sights and sounds of an almost mystical civilization, Davis struggles with his sense of duty and his growing affection for a young slave girl. Silverberg's mastery of the art of storytelling is perhaps most evident in his short fiction, as he demonstrates how much can be told through nuance and implication. Recommended for large sf or paperback collections.
