Man or his inventions — which will inherit the earth?

Back cover text

Science-Fiction Today — History Tomorrow

And the historians of tomorrow are men like Clifford Simak, winner of the International Fantasy Award; Theodore Sturgeon, hailed by the New York Herald Tribune as "A master of provocative story-telling;" Eric Frank Russell, the talented and imaginative author whose book "Deep Space" will soon appear in a Bantam edition; Isaac Asimov, whose brilliant laws of robotics have set a pattern for succeeding robot stories.

These, and eight other Science-Fiction Greats, tell their stories of Man and the Machines that may replace him.
