The Rim Worlds — inhabited by the dregs of the galaxy and damned by worlds warped by the unstable dimensions of space and time. An area of the universe that has always held a strange fascination for the author. Here are four exciting space stories by A. Bertram Chandler that delve into the mysteries of life and creation on the edge of the Milky Way:

Forbidden Planet — where two humans found a paradise in a world of hell...

Wet Paint — the curious archeological discovery of a cave world that defied explanation...

The Man Who Could Not Stop — he knew no limits until they found the ultimate in punishment...

The Key — they possessed the key to universal knowledge, but how could they find the door?
