"James White turns his hand to the peculiar problems of man in space. Four ingenious tales explore some of the wild-and not so wild-possibilities; the pressures, dangers, boredom man will have to suffer, and the courage it will take to get homo sapiens to live in a totally hostile element. Excitement, suspense and the thread of realistic humor hold together these four fast moving tales of the future."; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall
