THE WEAPON SHOPS OF ISHER has been first published as a novel in 1951.
In a distant future, a secret organization, in order to counterbalance the power of the government is selling special arms to the population. These arms can be used to protect oneself but not to attack others. During a 2000 years period, the government of Isher has been forced to tolerate this situation but now, the scientists of the princess Innelda, have discovered a new weapon that should destroy once and for all the Guild of the weapon makers. But instead of destroying the gunshop targeted, the government attack propels the gunshop in the past. A journalist of the year 1973 enters the gunshop that has suddenly appeared in his town and is brought back thousand years in the future by the gunshop. He'll soon understand that he won't be able to leave the house that is alternatively sent into the past and into the future at a formidable pace.
