Download A Rebel in Time (Tor Science Fiction) eBook
by Harry Harrison
I must have read 'A Rebel in Time' soon after it was published in 1983. A mixed bag. The first half of the story is a "who done it" and the science fiction part kinda sneaks in and then becomes the vehicle for the pursuit of the bad guy in the Antebellum South.
I must have read 'A Rebel in Time' soon after it was published in 1983. I thought it was earlier, at least 40 years ago, but my memory is playing tricks on me. What I do remember about it is that it was one of those very rare books that I enjoyed so much, that I turned around and reread it almost immediately. The best part of the struggle is that our intrepid hero is black and has to pursue the murderer in an area where he's likely to be picked up as an escaped slave and perhaps killed on the spot.

A Rebel in Time deals with two familiar SF themes; time travel and alternate histories. A present-day soldier, Troy Harmon, is recruited into an obscure government organisation whose job is to "watch the watchers"; to keep an eye on people with high security clearance.
A Rebel in Time book. The good parts of the book (the time travel, science fiction bits) get lost in an otherwise humdrum Civil War re-enactment. Maybe Harry Harrison intended for the book to start out as a modern mystery that took a sci-fi turn but the marketing gave it away. The book might play better if you didn't know what was coming. But when you’ve got Robert E. Lee and Confederate soldiers with machine guns on the cover, it feels like a huge let down when you don’t get more of that.

So wrote Harry Harrison in a 1990 essay that described science fiction, the genre in which he wrote more than 60 novels, as rubbish. Some critics thought his work helped prove the point. Charles Platt, writing in The Washington Post in 1984, said that Mr. Harrison was better at evoking the personalities of lizards than of people. He imagined taking a time machine to the future and finding no one there.
