Synopsis

New Angles on the Universe!

John Sladek is one of the most intelligent and versatile science fiction authors writing today. With sharp insight and wicked humor he opens his readers' minds to new angles on space, time, machines and men. In this brilliantly entertaining collection you will encounter galactic spies, nightmarishly benevolent computers, some extremely peculiar aliens, offbeat time machines -- not forgetting, of course, the Steam-Driven Boy itself...

In addition, John Sladek has included ten masterly parodies of the work of such all-time SF greats as Iclick As-i-move, Hitler I. E. Bonner, Barry DuBray, Carl Truhacker, Chipdip K. Kill and several others. Read them -- and experience a new high in outrage!
