That Penguin have chosen to reissue this Brian Aldiss early 60s anthology adds a certain (well deserved) respectability to it. One can only hope that in true SF style, it proves to be 'the shape of things to come'!
Aldiss provides a new introduction to this collection of SF stories from times passed, and the content additionally includes some newer pieces that were not in the original release.
"...these stories portray struggles against machines, epic journeys, genetic experiments, time travellers and alien races. From stories set on Earth, to uncanny far distant worlds and ancient burnt-out suns, the one constant is humanity itself, compelled by an often fatal curiosity to explore the boundless frontiers of time, space and probability."
