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.

Shelves: sci-fi
Colección de relatos, buenos en general, aunque hubo algunos más atrapantes que otros.

Carry this little book with you when you go for a read in the park or on a short trip. It is perfect. It allows for a quick read and you will find an intriguing short story that will make you think about it the rest of the day. I enjoyed it a lot and it proved once more that great SF ideas do not necessarily require entire collections to be shared with the public.

While never in the front rank of popularity in his lifetime, Brown has developed a considerable cult following in the almost half century since he last wrote.
