As Earth's faster-than-light spaceship hung in the void between galaxies, Arcot, Wade, Morey and Fuller could see below them, like a vast shining horizon, the mass of stars that formed their own island universe. Morey worked a moment with his slide rule, then said, "We made good time! Twenty-nine light years in ten seconds! Yet you had it on at only half power...."

Meet the Author

John Wood Campbell (1910-1971) was an early writer of science fiction pulp who later turned to editing, largely abandoning fiction by the time he was 28. As editor of Astounding Science Fiction from late 1937 until his death in 1971, Campbell is generally credited with shaping the so-called Golden Age of Science Fiction. Isaac Asimov called Campbell "the most powerful force in science fiction ever, and for the first ten years of his editorship he dominated the field completely."
