Reviews of Guardians of Time, the (1961)
Review by johnafair (2009-02-19)
These short stories open the story of Manse Everard and the Time Patrol that Anderson would revisit a number of times in both short story and novel length over the next three decades.
They were amongst the earliest science fiction I read, picking them up in the school library when I was about 12.
When I reread them many years later, they still had the power to enthrall me, especially 'Delenda Est' which deals with a history that does not include an Imperial Rome.
