Comments:

This novella was later expanded into the short novel of the same name. Political offenders are sentenced to live out their lives in the Cambrian Era. Time travel (developed in the early 21st Century) works one way only—backward—so there is no hope of release. Major themes are time, political intolerance, and personal isolation. Nominee for the best novella Nebula, 1967.
