VERSION . dtd 040400. ATLANTIS? A fairy tale!" The man by the window half turned. You can't be serious-" He began that protest confidently, but that confidence ebbed when there was no change in the expression on his companion's face. You saw the films of the first three runs. Did those look like the product of someone's imagination?

I have read probably 2/3 of her books and loved most of them, but this one is one of my favorites. it is such a great adventure and alternate-reality fantasy story! I so envied the main character because he got away from his location in history and got to be part of a different civilization. Modern civilization is pretty yucky, especially recently. There are no partisan politics or alleged "climate change" issues going on - just a good story.

This is the book that first introduced me to Andre Norton's writing, and it remains my favorite of her books to this day. One of her standalone novels, it incorporates both fantasy and scifi with the time travel to a past and alternate universe. I love the twist on the typical Atlantis stories. She gets around the language issue with typical skill. A freelance photographer trespasses on a secret government project and, inadvertently, gets sent back in time where he gets embroiled in the ongoing battle between Atlantis and the nation of Mu. Ray meets both sides and must choose to align himself with one. The results tip the scales as probably nothing else could.

I almost wished that she'd done a sequel, but at the same time, the way the story ended was just about perfect.

While this has been a favorite of mine since high school, it has lost much of its allure as science has progressed. The characters, civilizations, and politics could have been further developed much like the works of C.J. Cherryh. Norton writes well for the pre-college level of reader, yet was/is somewhat less challenging for the educated reader.

I read this book, so long ago. I was good to find it again. It was just as described and it arrived sooner than expected. Excellent.
Operation Time Search
(1967)

One day Ray Osborne was out to take pictures of a new Project as a favor for a friend. Something strange was going on.

There is a Project underway to record the past. The Project is searching for fabled Atlantis
Ray Osborne is a former soldier -- a specialist in unarmed combat -- who was released early to take care of his dying mother. After she passed away, Ray decided to return to the Army. Still, Ray does one last job for a friend.

The Grande Dame of Science Fiction and Fantasy has done it again. Psionics, Time Travel, Alternative Universe, Royalty. What more could you want?

Cho is a Sun-Lord, one of the aristocracy of Mu. He had been captured by pirates and then sold to the Atlanteans. Cho meets Ray in the hold of an Atlantean raider. Lady Ayna

Re Mu is the ruler of the Murian homeland. He was selected by testing from all the other Sun-Lords and extensively trained. His charisma and wisdom seem to fill any room that he occupies.

Chronos is the Poseidon -- ruler -- of Atlantis. His evil appears to ooze out of his body. Chronos is both powerful and foolish.

In this story, Ray enters the high security area of the project to take pictures on an Indian mound for an article being written by a friend. As he raises the camera, the time viewer comes on and he vanishes. While monitoring the film, the project leader notices his appearance and sudden disappearance and starts a search for him within the past.

Ray finds himself among huge trees that must be centuries old. The mound is no longer anywhere near. He is thoroughly confused and the waving shadows of the trees spook him. He runs through the forest until reaching a plain. There he is captured by primitive hunters using a ray gun of some kind.

Ray cannot understand any language spoken by his captors. He is taken down a creek to the sea. Yet a sea had not been close to the indian mound where he had been. He is rowed out to a galley without mast or sails. Later, Ray finds that the ship has some kind of motor, but uses oars near the shore.

Within the ship, Ray is chained next to another man. When Ray cannot understand his words, the man uses mind speech to communicate. By this time, Ray is so lost in disbelief that he accepts the telepathy as just another strange thing in his dream world.

The man introduces himself as Cho and tells Ray that they both are imprisoned within an Atlantean raider. They exchange stories and Cho informs Ray that, in Mu itself, a few Flame priests have tried to travel in time, but never returned. Then an Atlantean officer and a red robed priest of Ba-Al come to question them.

When their food is delivered, Cho captures the mind of the soldier and has him release Ray. As the man is unlocking the chains on Cho, the mindlink falters and the soldier hits Cho. Ray attacks the soldier and throws him against the hull. Then he finishes unlocking Cho's chains and both dive into the sea.

Another Murian ship arrives in the area and the Atlantean raider flees. The Murian ship has been searching for Cho, so they quickly go aboard and leave the land. On the way to Mayax and the Inner Sea, the ship rescues the crew of another Murian vessel from an Atlantean raider.

This tale describes the acceptance of Ray into the Murian society. He becomes the sword-brother of Cho and is adopted into the household of Lady Aiee, Cho's mother. Then he is officially instated as a Sun-Lord by the Great One, Re Mu himself.

Ray travels in spirit to Atlantis and sees the evil gathering there. He sees Chronos sharing in a blood sacrifice with the Ba-Al priests and observes him in court. He even spies upon Magos -- the chief priest -- in the midst of evil experiments.

While Ray is living in the past, the director of the project that sent him there is trying to recover him. The director calls upon another secret project to emit a mental lure to draw Ray back to the area where he first appeared. The lure affects Ray, but the Murians have means of protecting him from mental influences.

This story provides continual action. Even when Ray goes out to be alone and think about his situation, other characters starts talking treason in the vicinity. He is constantly on the go from interviews to spiritually spying upon the Atlanteans.

I recommend this book for fans of Andre Norton, but in the interest of full disclosure, I should say that this author's Star Man's Son was the first science fiction that I ever read and I may well be prejudice in her favor.
