Time's Last Gift (Wold Newton Prehistory)by Philip José Farmer
Three men and a woman onboard a timeship travel from 2070 AD to 12,000 BC - a journey that could never be repeated. For the passengers, all anthropologists, it was a once-in-a-million-lifetimes expedition... a chance to study primitive man as modern man never could. But none of them was prepared for what they would discover - or for the impact of their travels in a time that had yet to come...
A novel in the Wold Newton universe, in which characters such as Sherlock Holmes, Flash Gordon, Doc Savage, James Bond and Jack the Ripper are all mysteriously connected.

A pretty significant let down, this one. Terrible editing or none at all punctuate a story that only keeps one reading every ten pages or more, very easy to set down in between.
Its okay. Tarzan fans might enjoy and those who like to philosophize about time travel.
What a disapointment. I enjoy time travel stories and alternate realities but this is a waste of a good idea. It could have been great but the story just doesn't make you care about the characters. The first chapter pulls you in, but the rest dissapoints.
