Summary (From the publisher):

SOMETIME, NEVER is a brand-new collection of science fantasy which has just scored a tremendous success in England. Each of the three tales of imagination in this book is by a master of the art, and in each there is incident and invention enough to surpass most full-length novels.

ENVOY EXTRAORDINARY, by William Golding, tells of a barbarian genius who arrives in ancient Rome with three inventions--and the results are appalling.

CONSIDER HER WAYS, by John Wyndham, presents a shocking and utterly convincing picture of a world of woman--without men.

BOY IN DARKNESS, by Mervyn Peake, is a venture into a dream-like world of strangeness and terror--quite unlike anything you have ever read, and unforgettable.

All three stories were specially written for this book and have never previously appeared in print.
