Part: 6

Summary (From the publisher):

Strange histories and alternate futures feature in Volume 6 of the Collected Stories. Robert Silverberg's fertile imagination explores the consequences of an even more virulent Black Death in 1348 than the one our ancestors lived through; the woeful last days of a veteran archaeologist and his pact with the dead; the fortunes of a vagrant band of Crusaders in the New World; Henry James's eyewitness account of the War of the Worlds; a brilliant icy sheen over the Occupied Zone - and a spooky patch of darkness; the vanishing of the mighty capital of a great empire - and its reappearance as modern-day Chicago...and much more, including the only science fiction homage to J.R.R. Tolkien ever written.
