LORD KALVAN OF OTHERWHEN
"Occasionally I'm called upon to come up with a cover painting for a science fiction book that doesn't have any of the conventional symbols for SF recognized by the general public*I.e. planets, stars, spaceships, futuristic cities, etc. In this case I utilized the juxtaposition of the barbaric surroundings with the pistol in Kalvan's hand--a distinctly modern device."
Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen
H. Beam Piper (ACE)
The Paratime Police patrolled the vast number of alternate time dimensions. Their aim was to keep the existence of the alternative Earths a secret and prevent these Earths from mixing and destroying each other.
But the Time Police made mistakes, and they made a big one when a seemingly ordinary Pennsylvania State Trooper named Calvin Morrison was accidentally switched into the Aryan-Transpacific sector, Styphon's House subsector.
In just a few weeks, Morrison was being hailed as Lord Kalvan, and was masterminding a campaign that could blow the whole Paratime secret sky high!
