From the Doubleday Science Fiction Book Club comes this new anthology of short stories written by the author. The stories included are: No Truce With Kings, Turning Point, Escape From Orbit, Epilogue, The Critique of Impure Reason, and Eve Times Four. A space ship pilot attempts to isolate a few lovely ladies for his own purposes, on what he thinks is an uninhabited planet (Eve Times Four) . A scout team from Earth discovers that the natives of Joril are more intelligent than human beings (Turning Point) . A future - and fragmented - America fights for its spiritual, as well as its physical integrity (No Truce With Kings) . All stories are set in the future, and beautifully illustrate a popular contention that "science fiction is essentially the story both of the impact of the scientific future upon man, and the impact of man upon that future.

There are a two chips and a very small repaired tear in the back. The grey binding has black lettering on the spine, and the bottom corner is bumped. 249 pages. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
