The Edge of the Knife

by H. Beam Piper

5 ratings, 4 reviews

The Terro-Human Future History is Piper’s detailed account of the next 6000 years of human history. 1942, the year the first fission reactor was constructed, is defined as the year 1 A.E. (Atomic Era). In 1973, a nuclear war devastates the planet, eventually laying the groundwork for the emergence of a Terran Federation, once humanity goes into space and develops antigravity technology.The story “The Edge of the Knife” (collected in Empire) occurs slightly before the war, and involves a man who sees flashes of the future. It links many key elements of Piper’s series. (Summary from Wikipedia)

It's a good story, but the reader's voice is painful to the ears.

Just about the right length, about the right number of interesting characters and a cleverly constructed plot. A very good read.
