Chilling look at what could be our future! 17 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Earth loses it's orbit around the sun and everything on the planet freezes as it moves farther and farther away from sol. A family survives, huddled in one room covered with layers upon layers covering the entrance. They have to shovel the crystalized atmosphere and boil it over a fire to create breathable air in their little hut. Keep watch that the fire doesn't go out! Make sure the supply of air doesn't run low! Don't fall asleep if it's your watch, or you will all die! It is a chilling, well written story by Fritz Leiber. With all the disaster stories out there, about the end of civilization on our planet, here is a possibility that hasn't been considered too much. I give it a thumbsup for originality.
Wonderful Collection of Science Fiction Short Stories by one of the masters 19 Dec. 2013
By Ross G. Homer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I had this book when it first came out back in the early '60's. It was a fun read then, a great read now. I bought it for the "64-Square Madhouse," a story that's I'd been thinking about for several years. The other stories are just as good. He was a hell of a story teller and this is one of his best. It's too bad that so many of these classic science fiction books aren't in print anymore. I bought this one used.
