'Unable to exceed the speed of light, he found ways around the law of nature, twisting space and time to his bidding. But the lure of FTL speeds could would not be forgotten...and the crew of the Flying Cloud - casts-offs from the great civilisations of the galaxy- found themselves breaking through the barriers of the past to discover new worlds - worlds from which they could never return!'

Notes

  • Although the cover claims that story had never been published before, one of the four sections of the novel, 'The Winds of If' had been published in a slightly shorter version in the September 1963 issue of Amazing Stories. The 1969 release also includes an unrelated 38-page Chandler story 'Zoological Specimen, which was first published in the May 1954 issue of New Worlds, and reprinted three years later in Science Fiction Stories.
