Amazon and Google Play have the eBook edition of The End of Eternity by Isaac Asimov on sale for $2.99

One of Isaac Asimov's SF masterpieces, this stand-alone novel is a monument of the flowering of SF in the twentieth century. It is widely regarded as Asimov's single best SF novel.
Andrew Harlan is an Eternal, a member of the elite of the future. One of the few who live in Eternity, a location outside of place and time, Harlan's job is to create carefully controlled and enacted Reality Changes. These Changes are small, exactingly calculated shifts in the course of history, made for the benefit of humankind. Though each Change has been made for the greater good, there are also always costs.

During one of his assignments, Harlan meets and falls in love with Noÿs Lambent, a woman who lives in real time and space. Then Harlan learns that Noÿs will cease to exist after the next Change, and he risks everything to sneak her into Eternity.
Unfortunately, they are caught. Harlan's punishment? His next assignment: Kill the woman he loves before the paradox they have created results in the destruction of Eternity.
"His most effective piece of work. Asimov's exemplary clarity in plotting is precisely suited to the material at hand. Asimov's engagement with the present is clearer here than in his other works, as is his engagement with the human."
--Locus

"By literary standards, this tale of time travel from the 95th century is generally rated Asimov's best."
--Entertainment Weekly

"Asimov's flirtation with the tropes employed by A. E. van Vogt and Charles Harness is startling for an author deemed ultra-rational and scientific.… The effects of this influential, seminal book echo to the present, in the works of such writers as Greg Egan, John Varley, Kage Baker, and Greg Bear."

One of your all time favorites and it isn't worth $3. Wow.

A bona fide masterpiece, and rare in its brevity. It can be knocked out in just a few hours.

I re-bought the kindle book at $7 a couple of years back, and never saw it on sale before now.

( One caveat: Asimov is a master of plotting, not characterization or dialogue. If having insight into the characters, their mental states, etc. is important to you, Asimov (and this title) might not be for you. )

You're not criticizing the idea, merely the title. Obviously it's an intentional contradiction in terms, paradox, oxymoron. Most people interested in reading this can handle such. Or do you think oxymorons are idiotic because it contains the word MORON

More like a short story or novella, and 3 dollars seems a bit of a ripoff. Great read though, one of my all time favorites.

What a stupid idea for a book. The "End" of Eternity. Is that like an oxymoron?

The whole point of Eternity is that it embodies a thought of an existence WITHOUT END.

Idiots.

The only stupid i can see here is you - an idiot who judges a book by its title.

Eternity is the name of the organization in the novel. But hey, feel free to dump on a sci-fi classic because you don't understand the book title.
