"CALL ME KETAN!
Like all my companions in Kronweld I emerged full-grown from the temple of birth. My needs, my wishes, my passions were coldly filed in the perforated transparencies that constitute the integrated will of Kronweld.
But I alone harbor curiosity about our past. I alone know the Bors of dark land and how they are born. I alone have discovered the hidden secret of our birth...And have heard the groaning fertility prisoners of the other world. Here is their message:
"if any of you live, come through to us. Save us. Bring weapons!"
I am going to them now, I do not know whether I will ever return from the great edge..."

"A WORLD BEYOND TIME AND SPACE
In these brilliant stories, Damon Knight takes you on a dazzling tour of the outer galaxies of the imagination:
The occasion when an alien race send two representatives to the United Nations.
The meeting of two lovers whose only problem is that they are the only people left on Earth.
The moment when an unborn child begins to communicate with its parents.
Improbable? Not when the stories are written with the astonishing wit, the incredible logic and the surprising twists you have come to expect from this master of adult science fiction."
