Summary (From the publisher):

This is the future according to Arthur Sellings - a future where the old are shipped through time and dumped in another age when their own folk have no further use for them; where a deformed cripple is made miserable by kindness; where a robot becomes mankind's hero; where a visitor from space wins recognition only from Society's outcasts. It is a strange, but very human future born of the imaginative brain of a master storyteller who is often compared with Ray Bradbury.

Arthur Sellings has a rare understanding of the individual, and especially the misfit. He has, too, a richly varied vision, a polished style and the ability to convey any mood from stark tragedy to ironic humour.
