KIRKUS REVIEW

Five novellas from Galaxy permit a more extensive developments of complex concepts and distant worlds as they move into orbit and challenge as they entertain. There's William Tenn's superior, imaginative title story, in which a stubborn man refuses to leave the 25th century but yields to another kind of pressure, mortality; there's Theodore Sturgeon's To Marry Medusa in which a presence finds a human host to fulfill its mission; there's Damon Knight's entertaining reversal in Natural State. Asimov's robot, and F. L. Wallace's asteroid ""junkpile"" for the maimed.... Fanciful forecasting with contemporary connotations.
