The Edge of the Knife

The Edge of the Knife

H. Beam Piper

Science Fiction & Fantasy / Mystery & Thrillers

The Terro-Human Future History is Piper\'s detailed account of the next 6000 years of human history. 1942, the year the first fission reactor was constructed, is defined as the year 1 A.E. (Atomic Era). In 1973, a nuclear war devastates the planet, eventually laying the groundwork for the emergence of a Terran Federation, once humanity goes into space and develops antigravity technology. The story "The Edge of the Knife" (collected in Empire) occurs slightly before the war, and involves a man who sees flashes of the future. It links many key elements of Piper\'s series.

Then, overnight, war is everywhere. How it will end is in the (merely) two Terran hands of the new governor-general, a man shrewd enough to know that "it is easier to banish a habit of thought than a piece of knowledge." The problem is, the particular piece of knowledge he needs hasn\'t been used in 450 years.... --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
