From the cover: “Here is a collection of stories of man in contact with all the problems, exhilarations and terrors of alien life. Eleven masters of invention from Ray Bradbury, A. E. Van Vogt and Eric Frank Russell to H. P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith and John D. Beresford, have given their highly individual pictures of what men may have to face when space and time travel have become realities. Sometimes the contact brings a revelation of beauty and wonder as in that moving story, The City of the Singing Flame. Sometimes sheer horror is evoked, as in Spiro and Resurrection. But strangest of all perhaps are those stories where the alien element is in man himself.”
