Product Description

There is real time... and there is potential time.

By controlling the difference, the Chronotic Empire came into existence and maintained itself over a thousand years of human history. Its Time Fleets, armadas of time-travelling fortresses, patrolled its temporal borders relentlessly, blotting out potential-time deviations, erasing errors of history that might undermine the empire.

But nevertheless the empire's days were numbered, for somewhere in its own future was the century of the Hegemony, its implaccable enemy.

Barrington J. Bayley, author of COLLISION COURSE, once again demonstrates in this brilliantly different novel, his ability to weave unusual concepts of time with the human problems of the men and women caught up in the contradictions of a destiny no mortal could ever comprehend.


"Spectacular"
- Encyclopedia of Science Fiction

"Recommended, for its gorgeous campness as well as its ideas."
- Andy Robertson, Interzone

"Probably the most fully realized time paradox space opera from his pen."
- John Clute

"The Fall of Chronopolis roasts all the chestnuts in a monumental hearth; causal loops abound, sub-plots are allowed to swallow their own tales, futures impinge on presents and pasts cavort with elsewheres. Bayley, however, employs a wealth of such devices, meshing them together so tightly that, while they may not seem fresh, they still startle."
- Rhys Hughes
