Summary (From the publisher):

SOME of the stories you are about to read tell of people you know, of events that might happen--but haven't yet.
SOME will take you to the furthermost reaches of the sky, to planets whose names are unknown this side of Arcturus.
AND SOME--perhaps the richest and most memorable of these stories--open into the interior of strange minds... and reveal the reflection of ourselves.
ROBERT SHECKLEY is a story-teller whose uniquely imaginative fiction has reached an ever growing audience of delighted readers. This first collection of his stories is shrewdly calculated to win him a larger public still.
