Paratime Bibliography

"The book he was reading was Langmuir's Social History of the American People—not one of my favorites, a bit too much on the doctrinaire side, but what a bookshop clerk would give a foreigner looking for something to explain America."

— H. Beam Piper (narrator POV), "Crossroads of Destiny"

Interlude: "Genesis," September 1951

H. Beam Piper's novelet "Genesis," first published in Future combined with Science Fiction Stories, September 1951, is considered by some to be a Paratime yarn.  Set in a Terran prehistorical era, the yarn describes events which seem to correspond to the Martian origins of Paratime civilization described in the Paratime yarns "Last Enemy" (1950) and "Time Crime" (1955).  On the other hand, there is no explicit mention of Paratime civilization in "Genesis"—nor even of the concept of paratemporal transposition—and Piper abandoned the "Martian origins of Paratime civilization" idea by the time he wrote the Paratime yarn "Gunpowder God" (1964).

Interlude: "Crossroads of Destiny," July 1959

Piper's short story "Crossroads of Destiny," first published in Fantastic Universe Science Fiction, July 1959, could be a Paratime yarn.  Set on an obviously alternate Earth timeline, the yarn features what appears to be an encounter with a cross-time interloper who seems likely to be a Paratimer (or possibly an "accidental" Paratime traveler similar to the protagonist of Piper's Paratime novel Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen).  On the other hand, there is no mention of Paratime civilization in "Crossroads of Destiny" nor an explicit description of paratemporal transposition.  And unlike "He Walked Around the Horses," events of which are mentioned in "Police Operation," the events in "Crossroads of Destiny" are not referred to in any Paratime yarn.
