“Starman's Quest” became the ninth science-fiction novel of an exceedingly prolific American author of the 20th century. Works of Robert Silverberg count more than 60 novels, a great quantity of short stories, anthologies and none-fiction. Some of his stories were later on adapted for film and television. In this novel of interstellar journeys the protagonist, Alan Donnel, is to unravel the problem, which all astronauts are faced with in their trips away from Earth – the problem of time and its influence, physical and psychic, on travellers.
This is surely an exciting piece of modern science fiction by a master of the field.
Experiencing lack of food and provision, the crew of earthmen takes possession of a consignment of Martian animals, including Wub. The captain offers to cook this pig-like creature, but it definitely doesn’t want to be eaten. “Beyond Lies the Wub” is one of the science fiction stories, this collection includes. The action takes place in the far future outside of the solar system. Written by a twentieth century American novelist, short story writer, and essayist, Philip Kindred Dick, it touches upon moral dilemma that is solved completely unexpectedly for readers. Elegant and witty stories by a master of the genre.
