"The year is 1962. Inventor Philip Maxwell has just discovered psychotape - which can be played back for total reproduction of the emotions of whoever has made the recording. Maxwell, who has happened on the device only through his research for a means of alleviating his total insomnia, is amazed when the Hollywood cinemogul Zakon takes a sudden and violent hand in exploiting the gadget. That Zakon is no ordinary entrepreneur is soon evident, for he seeks nothing less than world control through the salting away of all the earth’s drones in his ‘dream palaces’ where the weak-willed can go and experience indefinitely the passions of others."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall

"All the laboratory animals used to test the dimensional quadrature device had perished. But Dr. Hugh Macklin was determined to run a low-power test with himself as subject, unaware that one of his associates - and his own wife - had arranged to kill him during the experiment. Seconds after the switch had ‘accidentally’ been thrown to full power, Macklin found himself 80 years in the future with a new body and name - on the moon! It wasn’t until he arrived at a point many thousands of years in the future - after several hair-raising adventures - that Macklin encountered a civilization advanced enough to tell him what he was, what had happened. He had become one of the ten or so Timeliners of the universe, a ‘psychotemporal parasite,’ whom death could not destroy but only send farther into a future to take over someone else’s identity."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
