An excellent collection of novellasMay 25 2001
- Published on Amazon.com
These stories were written before the end of Silverberg's "first period" (i.e., before 1974), and represent some of the finest short work he did during that time. The title story is a fine exploration of both survivor's guilt and the healing power of religious ecstasy. "Trips" is an playful take on the now over-used cliche of the alternate universe; no real conclusion, but still a fun ride. The remaining stories all entertain as only Silverberg can.
