Publishers Description: From a multiple Hugo winner and Science Fiction Grand Master: Three mind-bending stories featuring future worlds, space travel, and aliensAuthor Philip José Farmer blasts into space, races into the future, and travels back in time in three astoundingly original and thrilling science fiction adventures.

Review: Well, these were some oldies but some goodies in the SciFi novella genre. Farmer’s writing theme is ever present; questioning religion, spirituality, sexuality and his fear of death or the unknown. These early works are no where as good as River World yet the writing development is evident. Get these and be wholly entertained.
