Interior text

WORLD'S BEST SCIENCE FICTION: 1967 contains possibly the most unique collection of sf stories ever assembled in one book.

In it you will enter the world just around the corner — the illusive and fantastic corner of time:

The future millennia away — when Man is extinct and only his computers and robots roam the Earth, in senseless mechanical patterns, worshipping the long-dead race that created them....

Or the reverse corollary — when future Man worships the computer, and each man has a personal god who answers his prayers, even though Man has found the key to immortality....

Throughout this marvelous realm of the new science fiction one theme is outstanding: How might any of countless alternative futures affect Man — affect you...?
