Great! A collection of instantly engaging short sci-fi stories all of which would have made terrific episodes of a show like the original Rod Serling's Twilight Zone. I know Brown was a prolific writer and script writing was part of his livliehood. I don't know if he wrote for the TZ but he sure would have been at home with it. It is remarkable how Brown could draw you in after a paragraph or two.
It was definitely a very interesting book. All the short stories presented in it had an appeal to them and a sort of hidden comedy, and some were downright fascinating. It is a light book, easy to process, with clear messages.I would recommend it to anyone with an open mind.
