The Nebula Nominee Story and More!
Here is the only collection of stories by the Nebula nominee author of Skyclimber, Bioblast, and Dawn of the Demi-Gods. One of the only two writers to produce science fiction of increasing quality and sophistication from the earliest days of the pulps and into the last quarter of the 20th century, the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction hails Raymond Z. Gallun as "the best of those pre-1939 writers who failed to remain well-known."
Featuring "A First Glimpse," one of the author's two Nebula nominee novelettes for Analog, this mammoth 100,000-word collection includes the novelettes "Comet's Burial" and "Stamped Caution" and the two novellas "Brother Worlds" and "Forbidden Moon," which have been virtually unobtainable for nearly half a century; plus a quartet of reader favorites that have been out of print for more than twenty years, including "Davy Jones, Ambassador," "Hotel Cosmos," "Prodigal's Aura," and the masterful "Seeds of the Dusk."
Here is a collection—and an author—not to be missed by lovers of science fiction. These are stories the Encyclopedia has described as "plotted with vigor and packed with ideas, often decidedly original."
