What is the magic of science fiction?

It is a mode in which new and exciting ideas can be dramatized. It is a vehicle that throws the tendencies of our own society into startling relief; a medium in which human beings can be sharply satirized, and also warned of what they may become; a stage as large as space and time on which mankind may be seen acting under the stresses of undreamed-of social, psychological, and physical pressures; above all, a refreshing and necessary outlet for our sense of wonder.

So say novelist Kingsley Amis and poet Robert Conquest, science fiction addicts from boyhood, who triumphantly prove their contention in this dazzling collection of brilliant stories. The stories in Spectrum exhibit excellent writing, humor, and satire as well as high adventure, terror, and stunning ingenuity. An illuminating introduction by the editors adds to the pleasure of a wonderfully varied and richly entertaining volume.
