A fantastic idea, fairly amusing in the telling, with some delicious quirks, but the theme wears a bit thin. A comet comes into conjunction with the earth and renders all men but one sterile. Not only is he virile himself, but he can transmit his power by holding the hands of other men. International fame descends upon him; he is in constant demand; but it does him no good in the one direction where he loves. And then the comet recedes, leaving him stranded.
