The Arrows of Time free pdf In the alien universe of The Clockwork Rocket and The Eternal Flame, the travelers on the generation ship Peerless have completed a long struggle to develop advanced technology that could save their home world. But as tensions mount over the risks of turning the ship around and starting the long voyage home, a new complication arises: the prospect of constructing a messaging system that will give the Peerless news of its own future. While some see this as a guarantee of safety and a chance to learn of their mission's ultimate success, others are convinced that the knowledge will be oppressive. When these differences lead to violence, four of the crew must embark on the strangest journey they have ever undertaken: visiting a world where the arrow of time is reversed.
