Editorial Reviews

Paul Di Filippo
"Anderson’s groundbreaking concept is at least as affecting as Avatar, in one-tenth of the space, and with more intellectual rigor and less preachiness. First appearing in 1957, the story holds up exceedingly well, proving once again that cinematic SF always remains fifty years behind written SF."

Meet the Author

Poul Anderson was a multiple award winner in science fiction and fantasy. Kelly Freas illustrated some of his most notable stories. The author and artist were friends who met at science fiction conventions, Apollo launches, and other events.

Their widows present this electronic version of a story by Anderson as it was originally published in the fifties, with the original Freas magazine cover and all four interior drawings.

Both Karen Anderson and Laura Freas can be met at events like the Annual Vintage Paperback Collectors Show, which takes place every spring in the San Fernando Valley.

    Wonderful, engrossing story about someone who finds a new lease on life. The little kernel of the idea for Cameron's epic, is pretty obvious in the story. Give it a shot.

    Excellent story, with wonderful period illustrations from the late Kelly Freas. If you liked Cameron's Avatar, read this and discover where the story came from.
