The End of Eternity, a novel by Isaac Asimov.

The story has the potential to be a precursor to the Galactic Empire, a connenction that is hinted at in Foundation's Edge.

An earlier, shorter version of the novel was rejected by Galaxy, but was eventually published in The Alternate Asimovs in 1986.

The image opposite and the blurb below are from the 1974 printing of the Granada/Panther Science Fiction paperback edition, SBN 586024409. Cover illustration by Chris Foss.

Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover

His name was Andrew Harlan. He was an Eternal: a member of a highly exclusive organisation. He was a Technician, and his job was to range through past and present centuries, monitoring and even altering Time’s myriad cause-and-effect relationships . . .

But when he met Noÿs he fell victim to a phenomenon older than Time itself -- love. It was then that he realised he must use the awesome technique of the Eternals to twist Time so that they might survive -- together.

THE END OF ETERNITY is science fiction for the connoisseur; it is mind-bending storytelling by the world’s greatest modern master of SF -- Isaac Asimov.

'Monumentally good ideas... fascinating'
Damon Knight
