Overview

Thomas Blaine awoke in a white bed in a white room and heard someone say, "He's alive now. " Then they asked him his name, age, and marital status. That seemed normal enough—but what was this talk about "death trauma"? Thus was Thomas Blaine introduced to the year 2110, when science had discovered the technique of transferring a man's consciousness from one body to another, when a man's mind could be snatched from the past at the point of death and brought forward into a "host body" in this fantastic future world. But that was only a small part of it.

Meet the Author

ROBERT SHECKLEY (1928–2005) was a Hugo- and Nebula-nominated American author. First published in the science fiction magazines of the 1950s, his numerous, quick-witted stories and novels were famously unpredictable, absurdist, and broadly comical. In 2001 he was given the Author Emeritus honor by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America.

BRONSON PINCHOT, an Audie® Award–winning narrator, received his education at Yale University, which filled out what he had already received at his mother's knee in the all-important areas of Shakespeare, Greek art and architecture, and the Italian Renaissance. He restores Greek Revival buildings and appears in television, film, and on stage whenever the pilasters and entablatures overwhelm him.
