Summary (From the publisher):

Tormented artist, Edward Bush, wanders through the vacant centuries of the remote past, shadowed by the Dark Woman, who continually persecutes him with new questions, possibilities and terrors. Was she a hallucination produced by the stresses of his bizarre existence? Or was she a ghost from a future more remote than his own? Bush is removed from his contemplative state when he returns to his own time -the year 2093 - and is forced into a brutal regime to supervise mind-travel.

(From the publisher):

Bush materialised in the prehistoric shore... and the drama began.

For Bush was a mind-traveller, moving through time like a phantom... and haunted by a phantom, The Dark Woman. Was she a ghost from his future, or the product of a mind strained beyond endurance? Bush had other problems: emerging from the Devonian past into a totalitarian future he was trained to kill, sent back in time to assassinate a man who threatened the future.

This brilliant examination of the relationship between men and time is simultaneously a serious novel on that fascinating subject and a tense psychosexual thriller.

Serialized in three parts in New Worlds, October, November and December 1967.
