Publisher Description

A collection of worlds of wit and wonder, including:

"AND I AWOKE AND FOUND ME HERE ON THE COLD HILL'S SIDE" - Man seeks to get into bed with anything new and different, or die trying. But when the new and different was not human...would he die trying?

"THE MAN WHO WALKED HOME" - The first-time astronaut, stuck in the far future, slid ever so slowly toward a present whose past was his future and whose future was his past...

"I'M TOO BIG BUT I LOVE TO PLAY" - If genuine aliens are to communicate meaningfully, one must make himself into an analogue of the other. But how can you tell the difference between what is human - and what is merely identical?
