PRAISE FOR ROGER MacBRIDE ALLEN
THE DEPTHS OF TIME
A tense tale of intrigue set in the far future of terraformed—and doomed—worlds.
A highly readable balance of characterization, graceful and sometimes witty prose, and thoroughly, intelligently developed ideas.
ve read my fair share of Roger MacBride Allen novels over the years, and I
d have to say
The Depths of Time
is his best thus far. This novel has it all—hardcore science fiction foundation, a plot based upon a mystery that is guaranteed to drive you crazy trying to unravel it, and a deeply moving story.

To Eleanore and Matthew,
mother and son,
for creating a
past, present, and future
filled with wonder and joy.
He hath set eternity in their heart, yet so that man cannot find out the work that God hath done from the beginning even to the end.
That which is hath been long ago; and that which is to be hath long ago been: and God seeketh again that which is passed away.
Wherefore I saw that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him back to see what shall be after him?
