Strange and startling stories...lightning-quick dialogue...a crackling style that keeps the action moving almost faster than the story can be read--these are the trademarks of Alfred Bester, one of the most inventive authors in the field today.
Here, for the first time in book form, is a galaxy of Bester's out standing stories, including:
Fondly Fahrenheit: a killer robot and his master flee from the planetary police...
Disappearing Act: a U.S. Army hospital is faced with an unsolvable problem--patients who disappear and reappear at will...
Of Time and Third Avenue: a 1950 man comes into possession of a 1990 almanac, and finds that in order to keep it, he must match wits with a man from the future...
Oddy and Id: a charming but diabolical monster has the power to rule the world...
The Roller Coaster: a girl from the future has a affair with a twentieth century man...
Adam and No Eve: he was the last man on earth, the sole survivor of a total, chain-reaction holocaust.
