Spanning fifty years of writing from the Science Fiction Grand Master, this collection of alien encounters features new introductions to all fifteen stories, including the Hugo Award-nominated “Schwartz Between the Galaxies” and HBO adapted “Amanda and the Alien.” In these pages lie tales of a young man venturing into the occupied territory of an alien conquered United States to rescue his brother, three visitors from a very strange alien world arriving on Earth and meeting a tragic fate, and a dangerous life-form from a far-off world finding that suburban California holds some beings that are even more dangerous than it is.

Аннотация

Ulmekirjanduse suurmeistri Robert Silverbergi 16 lühiromaani, jutustust ja lühijuttu viivad lugeja teaduslikus fantastikas 1960ndatel domineerima hakanud uue laine põnevaile maastikele. Hoolimata nende tekstide tihti avangardistlikust ja pürotehnilisest vormist räägib Silverberg meile endiselt oma lemmikteemadest: ajaparadoksidest, jumalast, kliimakataklüsmidest, tagakiusatud teistsugustest olenditest, seksist, armastusest ja surmast. Nende kaante vahel näeb lugeja, kuidas esimest korda valitakse paavstiks robot, kuidas Maa pöörlemine ja tiirlemine peatub ning kuidas Ameerika võib olla fragmenteerunud lugematuks hulgaks erinevateks ajalooalternatiivideks.
