An early fantasy novel by Henry Kuttner, originally published in 1949 and later reprinted by ACE in the '60s.

Here's what one reviewer on Amazon says about this novel:

"The story here concerns the "nekron," a shadowy whatzit that is killing Earthlings and causing the spread of an all-new form of matter: "a dead null-energy pattern of negation." Freelance reporter Jerry Cortland, a Madame Curie-type physicist named Letta Essen, dilettante scientist Ira de Kalb and martinet Army Col. Harrison Murray attempt a trip to the far, far future, after having received a distress summons found in a mysterious box on the isle of Crete. de Kalb had recently discovered the eponymous "time axis" buried in the Canadian Laurentians, and so, somewhat reluctantly, the quartet takes off in answer to the summons of the Face of Ea, and to hopefully find a cure for the nekron plague. Somehow, though, they do not get very far--perhaps only 1,000 years from now; the authors coyly refuse to be specific--and then the really strange stuff starts happening, as their personalities are absorbed by their futuristic counterparts and they get involved with brewing trouble regarding some synthetic humans, the Mechandroids. And this capsule description does not even begin to convey the temporal theorizing, mind-blowing plot developments and mysterious happenings that befall the four, all culminating in a grand duke-out with the nekron itself through both time and space."

I read this novel, along with the other Henry Kuttner novels I've assembled, back in the 60s when ACE reprinted them. They're fun to read and enjoyable entertainment. If you're tired of fat, preachy fantasy novels, then these early novels of Henry Kuttner are very enjoyable, indeed.

Like all the books I assemble on MobileRead, this too was assembled to reflect human intervention and artistic judgment.

I hope you enjoy it.
