A Time of No Return is a science fiction novel written by James Huber. They were all volunteers, selected after long consideration, but it would be some time until the final participants in the program would actually be made privy to the nature of their assignment. When they were first advised of the need for top secrecy and the imperative that they work as a team, there were already a number of candidates who quickly opted out of the program. This had been expected, and, at each phase of the ongoing training, the participants would be offered the opportunity to leave with no questions asked or hindrances. Those in charge observed their subjects carefully, curious to see how they would form allegiances and spend their free time away from the intensive course of study to which they were subjected. Teams were gradually culled until finally three were left, and out of those three the final two would be selected. At that point, the Administrator and his top assistants addressed the groups. But their three groups were fully committed to the project, even if they had no idea yet what it would entail. The Administrator had chosen well.

James Huber's time travel science fiction novel, A Time of No Return, is an original and entertaining tale about a top secret government program. This finely plotted tale raises some thought-provoking issues and revisits the old concerns about time travelers changing elements of the past with possibly momentous alterations of the present. Huber's characters are well-defined, and the descriptions of their training are bound to have many action and adventure-oriented readers wishing they too had been selected to be volunteers. A Time of No Return is highly recommended.
