The subtext of a black cop in pre-civil war south is also not missed

The subtext of a black cop in pre-civil war south is also not missed. I loved this book the first time I read it years ago, and loved it today when I read it on my Kindle. The mad man aimed to preserve the Southern Cause. His Nemesis is an Army undercover cop with the courage to take a one way time trip. Harrison has a good feel for the social issues of mid-nineteenth century America. He also manages to bring in some very famous people from American history.

A mixture of fiction and non-fiction, varied, all jumbled together as if they were on a shelf of bargain books. Not completely jumbled. If there is one thread of interest that a number of them represent, it is military history. That is his life and his career. We can't make too much of that. All that we really have now are clues and hintsтАФand a quarter of a million dollars in gold. I'll back your plan to get closer to McCulloch.

A Rebel in Time (also published as Rebel in Time) is a 1983 science fiction novel by Harry Harrison. The book centers around a racist colonel, Wesley McCulloch, and his black pursuer, Troy Harmon.

He is the author of a number of much-loved series including the Stainless Steel Rat and Bill the Galactic Hero sequences and the Deathworld Trilogy. He has been publishing novels for over half a century and is perhaps best known for his seminal novel of overpopulation, Make Room! Make Room!, which was adapted into the cult film Soylent Green.

A Rebel in Time book. The whole thing ends up feeling pretty lightweight and thin. Maybe Harry Harrison intended for the book to start out as a modern mystery that took a sci-fi turn but the marketing gave it away. The book might play better if you didn't know what was coming. But when you’ve got Robert E. Lee and Confederate soldiers with machine guns on the cover, it feels like a huge let down when you don’t get more of that.

Harry Harrison is the author of Deathworld, Make Room! Make Room! (filmed as Soylent Green), the popular Stainless Steel Rat books, and many other famous works of SF.

Talk about Rebel in Time

I must have read 'A Rebel in Time' soon after it was published in 1983. I thought it was earlier, at least 40 years ago, but my memory is playing tricks on me.

What I do remember about it is that it was one of those very rare books that I enjoyed so much, that I turned around and reread it almost immediately.

When I discovered that it had been released as an eBook, I was curious to find out if I thought it was as good as I remembered.

It is. Started last night, finished this morning.

Give it a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Now if the publishers would just release out of print books in eBook form... I'm thinking of 'Memoirs of an Invisible Man' and 'And to my Nephew Albert I Leave the Island What I Won Off Fatty Hagan in a Poker Game' (if only for the books's title).

this book would be an excellent movie .look at the cover, that machine gun would have changed the course of the Civil War..and to send a black man back during that time to correct things is an exciting theme.
Balhala
Sympathetic, thoughtful characters. Good feel for the period. Does not seem dated after 30 years. Good use of time travel, parallel worlds and paradoxes. Ingesting
Gardall
Well writen alternate history.

No dust jacket!

A Rebel in Time is fun, thoughtful, and well researched. It starts with a classic cop after a bad guy, but rapidly escalates to a chase through time. The subtext of a black cop in pre-civil war south is also not missed. I loved this book the first time I read it years ago, and loved it today when I read it on my Kindle.

A mixed bag. The first half of the story is a "who done it" and the science fiction part kinda sneaks in and then becomes the vehicle for the pursuit of the bad guy in the Antebellum South. The best part of the struggle is that our intrepid hero is black and has to pursue the murderer in an area where he's likely to be picked up as an escaped slave and perhaps killed on the spot.

I'm not a big detective story reader, so the first half, although well done, moved kinda slow for me. The second half of the book woke me up and the story came alive.
This has strong echos of Guns of the South. A mad racist finds a way to return to the pre Civil War south. He brings a stack of gold, plans for a new kind of weapon and a copy of that weapon itself, the easy to manufacture WWII British Sten gun. The Sten cost a pittance to make and was simple enough that parts could be made in tiny shops all over England. The mad man aimed to preserve the Southern Cause.
His Nemesis is an Army undercover cop with the courage to take a one way time trip.
Harrison has a good feel for the social issues of mid-nineteenth century America. He also manages to bring in some very famous people from American history. All in all it is a readable if not very innovative or frankly all that interesting book.
In 1983 when it was published it was probably fresher. Time travel is a now well traveled road and we want something new. Sorry Harry, I do like the body of your work.
