SF novel, winner of the Nebula Award for best novel in 1982. INSCRIBED, SIGNED & DATED BY THE AUTHOR/''For Paul, my only (so far) Nebula winner, MB, Michael Bishop, July 16th 1988''.
''Bshop's most public success soon followed. NO ENEMY BUT TIME (1982), which won a Nebula Award for best novel, intensified the movement of his imagination to a local habitat, and for the first time introduced a protagonist of sufficient racial (and mental) complexity to carry a storyline immured in the particular and haunted by the exotic. In this case, dogged by dreams of the Pleistocene, the new Bishop protagonist - who is not dissimilar to the Habiline who later featured in the less successful and overextended tale of Atlanta and Haiti, Ancient of Days (1985) - is enlisted into a Time-Travel project, returns to the Africa of his vision, fathers a child in the dawn of time, and returns with her to the battering world. The tale is both melancholy and epic'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
