It's a fight to the death in the swirling vortex!

Thag has a crude axe, a surprisingly well-made spear, and biceps to die for!

Boris has a WWII era submachinegun!

BR4xt!229 has a roller from his ship's photocopy machine!

My money's on Boris!


"The Huntington Herald-Advertiser concocts the best blurb since that one from the Beaumont Journal!"


Don't be confused by those pirate printings of "The Time Traders" -- many of them are incomplete! Or abridged!

---- fairness, Andre Norton is actually an author with some modest cred. Check out Wiki. Dude's a chick! Like George Elliot!

I don't know - Thag seems to have gotten the drop on Boris. Now if he could only choose which weapon to use (and then hold it properly).

I Like How The Huntington Herald-Advertiser Has A Policy Of Capitalizing Every Word.

That one guy does look a tad like Billy Ray Cyrus.

Egad! I had that book years ago. I remember the cover. Don't remember much of the plot though.
