Crossover Cover: The Shield of Time


Manse Everard, debriefing a Time Patrol agent, says that he will be “securing the Altamont case... It’s in 1912. World War One is brewing. The Germans think they've found a spy who can infiltrate the opposition, an Irish-American called Altamont. Actually, he’s an English agent, and in the end will turn the tables on them very neatly. The trouble from our viewpoint is, he’s too observant and smart. He’s uncovered certain odd goings-on. They could lead him to our military studies group in those years. A member of the group knows me and asked me to come help work up something to divert the man’s attention. Nothing major. Mainly we’ll have to do it in such a way that he doesn’t deduce something still curiouser is afoot. It should be kind of fun.” Altamont is the alias used by Sherlock Holmes in Doyle’s “His Last Bow.”

This crossover is one of hundreds included in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, to be published by Meteor House! Like its predecessors, this volume is an AUTHORIZED companion to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
