[From the back cover]: Called to the end of time by a being they knew only as The Face of Ea, four adventurers from the 20th century faced a power that not even the super-science of that era could meet - the nekron, negative matter, negative force, ultimate destruction for everything it touched. It seemed hopeless to expect these adventurers to win this battle for the fate of the universe - but between them they had a power they could not expect.
