Murray Leinster, autor já bem conhecido da Colecção Argonauta, através da edição de A Nave Sideral, O Planeta da Utopia, e O Planeta Esquecido, regressa a esta colecção com uma das suas obras mais sugestivas e sensacionais: O Túnel do Tempo. A prodigiosa imaginação de Murray Leinster, o seu sentido do verossímil e do fantástico, aliados a uma sensibilidade dramática verdadeiramente invulgar, conferem ao Túnel do Tempo uma vibração cénica que plenamente justifica a sua adaptação como espectáculo televisionado por uma das mais importantes redes norte-americanas -- The ABC Television Network / 20th Century Fox Television / Irwin Allen Productions.

They have invented a Time Tunnel, which will allow people to visit anywhere in time and space. While testing the tunnel for an impatient senator, Newman and Phillips became trapped in time, and each week coincidentally found themselves at the site of an important historical event, be it the Siege of Troy, the sinking of the Titanic or an assassination attempt on President Lincoln. Sometimes they traveled into the future, and battled alien invaders. Ann MacGregor, Gen. Kirk and Dr. Swain are the scientists trying to fix the malfunctioning Time Tunnel and bring Doug and Tony back to the present (1968). [IMDb Plot Summary].
