"Wonderfully entertaining . . . a story that engrosses you with its dramati zed ideas about the nature of existence . . . You won't set the book down e ither to eat or sleep or work if you can help it."--Chicago Tribune In an instant, Earth is carved up in time and reassembled like a huge jigsa w puzzle. Suddenly the world becomes a patchwork of eras, from prehistory t o 2037, each with its own indigenous inhabitants. The explanation for this cataclysmic event may lie in the ancient city of Babylon, where two groups of refugees from 2037--three cosmonauts and three U.N. peacekeepers--have d etected strange radio signals. The peacekeepers find allies in nineteenthce ntury British troops and in the armies of Alexander the Great. The cosmonau ts join forces with the Mongol horde led by Genghis Khan. Both sides set ou t for Babylon, vowing to win the race for knowledge--as a powerful and myst erious entity watches, waiting.
