Intangibles Inc. were represented by a small man with spectacles and a long, long face. He travelled about, selling his product to people who didn't really know what an Intagible was.

The treatment if women is dated and jarring, but this is a very fine collection of weird early Brian Aldiss. The title story will haunt you for a long time.

A collection of five SF short stories originally published between 1960 and 1969. If you enjoy SF short stories as much as I do, then this is an excellent book by one of the greats of British SF. For me, the title story was the best, but all were fun.
