Description du produit

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

DRAFTED INTO THE ARMY OF TIME

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).

"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.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Compendium of Two Decent Stories from the 1950s 15 août 2015
Par illiandantic - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book, "Time Traders" by Andre Norton is a compendium of the first two books in her "Time Traders" series: "The Time Traders" and "Galactic Derelict." The novels were written in 1958 and 1959, respectively. They read just about as you'd expected decent science fiction to read from that era: technically good writing, good story, but a bit linear/simplistic in plotting (and there's nothing wrong with that since that's just the way it was back then). The two books aren't quite evenly matched, though. "The Time Traders" is quite a bit better than "Galactic Derelict" with much more of a plot to it. For "The Time Traders," my only real issue with it is that the pacing could use some work. The last half just keeps going from action point to action point with no rest in between. It gets a bit tiring. On a stand-alone basis, I'd rate that book at 3.5 to 4 stars (out of 5). "Galactic Derelict" is not as good. Most of it consists of our protagonists being dragged along somewhere without anything they can do about it. So, instead of them solving a problem, it's more of a travelogue. The writing also feels more 50s stilted than the previous book. I'd rate this book at 3 stars. So, as an average, I'd say the compendium is an OK 3 stars out of 5.

The books in Andre Norton's "Time Trader" series are:

1 and 2: Time Traders: The Time Traders & Galactic Derelict
3: The Defiant Agents
4: Key Out of Time

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Classic Sci-Fi From the Golden Age of Sci-Fi 1 mars 2013
Par Fantasyman - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is a great read. Classic '50's Science Fiction, from the Golden Age of Science Fiction, before space flight, Moon walks, and the Space Shuttle, turned so much of what was for so long just a dream into an everyday, ho-hum, mention on the daily newscast. This book dates from a time when Sputnik was new and manned space flight still the stuff of fiction. Ms. Norton crafts this tale around an unlikely sort of hero, a young man in trouble with the law, who makes a deal with the court to "volunteer" for a special project. As soon as he says; "Yes," he's off to the unknown. This story has it all; time travel, alien spaceships, US against the USSR in Cold War time travel, yep, I'd say that will do for a bit of plot tease. But, this isn't just a Science Fiction story, it's also a great adventure tale, an out of the frying pan and into the fire, action-packed story that would make Edgar Rice Burroughs proud. Lots of action, lots of adventure, a vision of a slightly different today than actually exists, never a dull moment.

For free on Kindle, you will not be disappointed.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good adventure story... actually two related stories 25 avril 2013
Par Thomas Coffey - Publié sur Amazon.com

The late Andre Norton was a prolific writer of good Science Fiction yarns, was nominated for and won numerous awards, and has an award in her name for outstanding work in the fantasy or science fiction for young adult literature. One of her book series, The Beast Master, spawned several movies of that theme and name in the 80's.
I first became acquainted with her writings in the late 50's, and found her books to be great adventure stories for the juvenile market. That doesn't demean her work in any way, but rather means that her work is very readable, of reasonable length, and filled with adventure and imagery that interests and entertains even younger readers. Adults may want more techno-babble, a much longer story with deeper character development, plot twists and turns, maybe a bit of romance or sexiness, perhaps frequent terrifying passages that fill with anxiety. But Andre wrote enjoyable books you might finish on a cross country flight or a day or two of rainy vacation and be thoroughly entertained.
Recurring themes in Andre's novels is the alienated outsiders finding themselves along a journey of adventure that allows them to realize their full potential. Quite an effective theme for younger men and women. The setting often is an earth-like world or worlds, and include animals of various sorts, some with telepathic or empathic abilities. The journey is often through space or time, in some cases, as in this novel, both, and the quest is often for alien technology to aid our own reach for the stars.
The Time Trader is the first in a series of seven books that build on the main character and/or theme. The Time Trader is a two part novel, the first part introduces the main character and supporting players and setting, and moves to a satisfactory completion of an adventure in time of discovery and accomplishment. The second part introduces a second main character, and unfolds an adventure both in time and space that sets the stage for novels to come in this series.
For me four stars means that I really liked this adventure, but I am not rushing out to find the next book, yet I will read the next and rest when I come across them. Five stars would mean that I'd be immediately getting the sequel and telling everyone that they really must read this.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The start of a great saga by the Queen of Sci-Fi! 28 octobre 2012

I love Andre Norton and to me she is the Queen of Sci-Fi. I started reading Andre Norton at a very young age and she is one of the authors who got me hooked on Sci-Fi. I kept every one of the original paperback books I purchased as a child to create a library and I have most of her original book releases. Today I enjoy reading books on the Kindle Fire and the Kindle Keyboard version and one of the things I enjoy the most is reading the old Sci-Fi classics. The first books I got when I received my first Kindle were Andre Norton's best stories.

The Time Traders was the start of a series of books by Norton that covered the Time War. Russia is sending time agents back into time and discovering ancient weapons of alien origin. The United States has no option but to seek out those technologies for ourselves or be faced with an even more powerful enemy. A special team of agents are put together to go back in time acting as merchant traders to find out where the Russians have found technology from a space traveling civilization that came to earth in our ancient past....

This is an excellent book and one of the first that got me started on my lifelong love of Sci-Fi stories and movies. Andre Norton was a visionary and a tremendous story teller. She captured my heart and mind as a child and I still love her work over 50 years later. I recommend this book to you.
