Nine stories travel through time and space to share insights into the human-and not so human-experience inthis gripping science fiction anthology from respected author and critic Algis Budrys ¡ Through stories of humans mistaken for gods and assimilation into an android society, this stunning collection illustrates our inability to understand and communicate with one another. ¡ In Silent Brother, the spaceship Endeavor returns to Albuquerque, New Mexico, from the five-planet solar system of Alpha Centaurus; in an unprecedented move, the UN forbids interviews with the returning astronauts or any examination of the starship, but one man-wheelchair-bound Harvey Cable-thinks he knows the nature of a strange disease that may be spreading. In Between the Dark and the Daylight, people trapped under a dome in the aftermath of an expedition that crashes on an unlivable planet find a terrifying way to fight back. The Man Who Tasted Ashes is a longtime assassin who meddles in human history; his latest assignment will set off World War III. And nothing is what it seems in a story where a doctor visits a man blinded in an accident. Other tales are populated by humanoids, mutants, parasitic aliens, and a girl with a special gift, who is rejected by others of her kind.
