A RIP THROUGH TIME follows the time-cop's travels in a series of five short stories and a bonus flash piece written by several of today's top pulp writers. Chris F. Holm opens the collection with the fast-paced "The Dame, the Doctor, and the Device." Charles A. Gramlich's "Battles, Broadswords, and Bad Girls" and Garnett Elliott's "Chaos in the Stream" breathe new life into the time travel story. Bringing the saga to a gripping climax in "Darkling in the Eternal Space" is Chad Eagleton, who then takes it a step further with a mesmerizing coda, "The Final Painting of Hawley Exton." And for all the time-traveling enthusiasts, Ron Scheer provides an insightful essay, "Are We Then Yet," which explores the mechanics of time travel in popular fiction.
