Revue de presse

At the end of this century Ross Murdock is given the choice between prison and a dangerous role in a secret mission. Accepting the latter, but determined to escape at the first opportunity, the intelligent young man finds himself involved in a project which demands that he be projected back to various periods in history. For the Americans, aware that the Russians, somewhere in time, have learned the secret of space travel, must for the sake of national safety, obtain the same secret. Hurled back into the earliest ages of man, Ross' volatile intelligence is, for the first time, stimulated as he risks death, posing as a member of prehistoric worlds. By the time the Americans gain control of the secret, Ross is rehabilitated and is a willing participant in the benevolent army of the future. An interesting idea, well handled by Andre Norton, science fiction expert, who projects his reader deftly both backwards and forwards in time and injects his narrative with considerable and interesting historical information. (Kirkus Reviews) --Kirkus Reviews

Présentation de l'éditeur


Intelligence agents have uncovered something which seems beyond belief, but the evidence is incontrovertible: the USA's greatest adversary on the world stage is sending its agents back through time! And someone or something unknown to our history is presenting them with technologies—and weapons—far beyond our most advanced science. We have only one option: create time-transfer technology ourselves, find the opposition's ancient source . . . and take it down.

When small-time criminal Ross Murdock and Apache rancher Travis Fox stumble separately onto America's secret time travel project, Operation Retrograde, they are faced with a challenge greater than either could have imagined possible. Their mere presence means that they know too much to go free. But Murdock and Fox have a thirst for adventure, and Operation Retrograde offers that in spades.

Both men will become time agents, finding reserves of inner heroism they had never expected. Their journeys will take the battle to the enemy, from ancient Britain to prehistoric America, and finally to the farthest reaches of interstellar space. . . .

At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (DRM Rights Management).

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Unnecessary Revisions Weaken a Classic 25 août 2001
Par R. D. Clark - Publié sur Amazon.com
If you're like me, you read these novels as a youngster in the late 50's or early 60's, and you were drawn in not just by the no-wasted-motion adventure/scifi style for which Ms. Norton became so well loved, but by the glimpses of a not-too-distant future that was clearly based on a somewhat uncertain present. The style is still there in this new edition, but the future, sadly, is gone. For reasons that elude me, the political/cultural milieu of the original near-future has been updated (the Bad Guys are no longer "Reds," they're from a post-USSR-breakup "resurgent Russia"), and the result is not a good fit. The narrative and characterizations still have that squeaky-clean Fifties feel, so the 90's references feel anachronistic. Part of the pleasure of reading classic sf is to enjoy the retro flavor; this attempt to overlay a contemporary veneer simply rings false. What's worse, the paperback edition, which I purchased, bears no indication anywhere that these revisions exist. I discovered them only as I read along and became increasingly disturbed by things that didn't fit. If you want to read a classic, and especially if you want to relive the experience of reading the classic you remember from your youth, do yourself a favor and track down the original text.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderfully fun stuff! [R.I.P. Andre Norton 17 March 2005] 20 août 2001
Par Steven Eldredge - Publié sur Amazon.com
There is nothing quite like the type of space yarn that the great and greatly prolific Andre Norton wrote in the 1950s and 1960s. Well-crafted, colorful, exciting, with a wonderful sense of strangeness and awe to the settings and descriptions, these books never fail to delight, no matter how many times you read them. Even the elements which tend to date these novels add a sort of nostalgic charm that I find irresistable. Baen Books is to be applauded for its plan to re-publish a lot of her out-of-print novels in these omnibus editions. If you have yet to get into Andre Norton, now is a good time. You are bound to have a fun fun time!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Still Strong After All These Years 27 octobre 2002
Par Emil L. Posey - Publié sur Amazon.com
A reprint of the 1958 edition, this was like finding an old friend. I first read this in 1958 or 1959, when I was about 10 years old. I remembered snippets of it ever since and wondered if I would ever come across it again. The story is just as fresh as it was then. Indeed, I looked for some disclaimer that it had been updated, but found none. Other than the lack of scientific explanation underlying key aspects of the plot, thus dating its style somewhat, this was a remarkably prescient piece. And far from sophomoric in the bad sense, it appeals to the kid still inside me. I enjoyed it as much now as I did when I was 10. It has time travel, Russians, aliens, prehistoric tribes, space ships, personal struggle and triumph...what more can you want in a science fiction yarn? From over 40 years ago, it still rates 5 stars!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An all time great Sci Fi book. 26 octobre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
This was the first Sci Fi book I read 35 odd years ago. And it launched me into reading all her other stories and the other great Sci Fi authors too. It is fun to reread this book now for it takes place late in the 20th century. The Cold War fears of that time (remember it was written in the 50's) are all thru the book and very familiar to one who grew up then. This book and the following three are still very good reads. They are full of adventure and bold ideas and you do wnat them to end, And now I see where Ms Norton and another author are writing new Time Trader books. I cannot wait!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Entertaining Read 5 février 2013

"Time Traders" fell under the recommendation list for me as a free Kindle. At first, I wasn't really all that into typical science fiction stories of the 50s, though I do enjoyed some of them. The cover itself wasn't as interesting as the title itself. Admittedly, I am a fan of all things time-travel. So, I put aside a time to read this with no expectations.

This Kindle version actually have two books in one: "The Time Traders" and "Galactic Derelict." The former is the first in the series quite appropriately entitled "The Time Traders" with the latter being the second novel. The first focuses on a confrontation between the US and the "Reds" as well as the mysterious alien race that has used time travel (this novel route back and forth between present day and a trading tribal society in ancient Britain). The main character is Ross Murdock, who always in trouble with the laws, but he was chosen for his physical make-up and quickly recruited into the army of time. Through him, we discover a conflict between the Russians and the Americans in the past and by an accident, an alien race who aren't happy to see one of their own neglected crashed ships on Earth being looted. The second novel directs our attention to a new character, Travis Fox, an American Indian, as he eventually stumbled upon the army of time and became recruited as well. Both Fox and the characters of the previous story taken upon a secret mission to recover a crashed ship in the past and eventually, in an emergency, Fox, Ross, Ashe, with technician Renfry, all taken shelter inside an intact ship and became trapped when the ship takes off on an automatic course. During their journey, they'd experience three worlds, no longer alive with an advanced alien civilization, and work their way back home.

Needless to say, I actually found myself enjoying this series and will attempt to read more by this author. As I was getting into the stories, I can see that they are pure adventure, action-packed, quite suitable for young adult audience. Which, all made me wish that I would read this series when I was a kid - I would really enjoy them, then and now.
