Then he drives out to view the origin of the fury and finds a dullish-black ten-foot sphere in a hollow. Lesser Biggle, but still head and shoulders above most of what is being written these days.

Then he drives out to view the origin of the fury and finds a dullish-black ten-foot sphere in a hollow. Nearby he finds an impossible butterfly. The first section of this book (100 pages or so) are a deft a skewering of governmental response to a crisis situation (and without veering into stereotypes) as you will find anywhere in print. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately for other authors competing for the same book dollar), Biggle does not maintain this level for the balance of this volume. 6 people found this helpful. The first part of the novel describes the efforts and evidence that finally convinces the authorities that the sphere is a time machine. Eventually Karvel gets into the sphere and travels forward in time. There he finds an advanced society, but also some inconsistencies.

One thing seemed imperative: a human operator must man the intricate controls of the capsule, riding it forward to its mysterious point of origin. (April 17, 1923 – September 12, 2002), was an American musician, author, and internationally known oral historian. Biggle was born in 1923 in Waterloo, Iowa. He served in World War II as a communications sergeant in a rifle company of the 102nd Infantry Division; during the war, he was wounded twice. His second wound, a shrapnel wound in his leg received near the Elbe River at the end of the war, left him disabled for life.

Mr. Biggle is the author of a number of choice short stories as well as a number of novels, many of these belonging to a couple series. I try to convince the would-be reader by other routes.

Colonel Vukin introduced them, and Alexander gave Haskins a cigar, told him it was a boy, seven pounds four ounces, and asked what had happened to Karvel. He was in an accident, Haskins said nded incoherent on the telephone. Or maybe it was a bad connection. I thought he said he’d found- Let’s see it before we talk about it, Haskins said. I’ll take him up, Colonel. Thank you. He hurried the professor away before Vukin could object. Are you interested in butterflies?. Only in this one, Haskins said.

Bowden Karvel's theory, that the capsule's port of origin lay in the distant future, seemed a plausible explanation. But while investigating, the capsule was accidentally dispatched again through tim. nly to reappear with an alien navigator, this time destroying a small French town. And Bowden Karvel seemed the perfect choice to make the trip. Sci-fi & Fantasy.

Swift-moving clouds were crisply white against immaculate blue. The wind that knifed its way up out of the valley and tore at the gaily colored umbrella was cruelly cold, but Karvel did not reach for his discarded jacket.

carousel previous carousel next. All the Colors of Darkness. Swift-moving clouds were crisply white against immaculate blue. Sounds of arriving and departing cars drifted to him fitfully from the parking lot. In the main room of the tavern two choruses of exuberant airmen began to shout songs. Thumping gusts of wind capriciously blended the strains of Roll Out the Barrel and Yellow Rose of Texas, to the enhancement of neither.

The Fury Out of Time is a science fiction mystery. Major Bowden Karvel is a retired Air Force officer and astronaut. Discharged for disability at the age of 36 with an artificial leg and a bitter attitude, he is lonely, bored and drinking too much. He is living in a trailer park outside Hatch Air Force Base and just marking time.

In this novel, Karvel has gone to Whistler's Country Tavern for a little company, although Ma Whistler forces him to eat some breakfast as well. After an argument, Whistler sets out an umbrella table and two chairs in the backyard area called a garden. As he is watching the magnificent view of the nearby valley, something starts knocking down trees in a widening spiral and soon pushes Karvel off his feet. As Karvel lies bleeding twenty feet away and the table sails off down into the valley, Whistler comments on the lack of noise.

Although called a tornado for convenience, the phenomenon is definitely not a weather condition nor anything else previously observed. Karvel orders the base personnel at the tavern to start rescue efforts and alerts the base itself. Then he drives out to view the origin of the fury and finds a dullish-black ten-foot sphere in a hollow. Nearby he finds an impossible butterfly.

The first part of the novel describes the efforts and evidence that finally convinces the authorities that the sphere is a time machine. Eventually Karvel gets into the sphere and travels forward in time. There he finds an advanced society, but also some inconsistencies.

This novel presents some interesting concepts and characters. As with most of the author's other science fiction works, the protagonist of this story is presented with a mystery which he must solve. The puzzle itself is as fascinating as the strange cultures Karvel encounters along the way.

The ending ties up all the loose strings and leaves Karvel with many options. Furthermore, he has time to decide what to do with the rest of his life, but we will probably never know which option he selects.

Highly recommended for Biggle fans and for anyone else who enjoys SF mysteries and strange cultures.

This was one of my top ten SF books of all time when it appeared, and I'd still put it in the top twenty, even with so much published since. I could hardly wait to see what happened next, and it goes through all sorts of unexpected twists and turns before arriving at a very satisfying ending. Mr Biggle writes easily and naturally, with a touch of ironical humour.

Disabled Air Force Major Bowden Karvel is hanging out with some friends at a local tavern, when he sees trees starting to fall in the valley below, in a widening spiral of destruction. At the centre is some sort of spherical vehicle, with some sort of human pilot in it — stone dead.

Where did it come from? The capsule itself is the only clue, and the only way to find out where it came from is for a live pilot to take it to its point of origin...

Books that really drive are rare, even among best-sellers (some obvious examples are the James Bond and Modesty Blaise tales); but in Science Fiction they're even fewer. This, however, is a prime example: others include The Stars My Destination (aka Tiger, Tiger), Galactic Patrol and The Man in the Maze.

This is my favourite story by Lloyd Biggle Jr.
It's so easy
Highly recommend this author for anyone who enjoys scfi and/or fantasy. Imaginative, intelligent and very well written. I am reading and enjoying as many of his books as I can find. Just great reads!

Lesser Biggle, but still head and shoulders above most of what is being written these days. The first section of this book (100 pages or so) are a deft a skewering of governmental response to a crisis situation (and without veering into stereotypes) as you will find anywhere in print. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately for other authors competing for the same book dollar), Biggle does not maintain this level for the balance of this volume. Still there is plenty here to make you laugh out loud at one moment, and set the book down to think for a spell the next.
The biggest problem this book has is that Biggle manages to write his way into a corner. Worse still, having gotten there, he simply stops--whether from lack of further ideas, publication deadline, or sequelitis this reviewer does not know. Still, while Biggle's fury may have run out of time, lucky readers who buy this volume can rejoice that this book is (at long last) back in print!
