‘We travel in the hands of a master. Silverberg’s touch is assured, his prose clean and wonderfully effective… Silverberg succeeds brilliantly in conveying the unknowable strangeness of the universe.’
‘Silverberg seems capable of amazements beyond those of mere mortals’
From the Back Cover
Strange histories and alternative futures feature in Volume 6 of the Collected Stories. Robert Silverberg's fertile imagination explores the consequences of an even more virulent Black Death in 1348 than the one our ancestors lived through; the woeful last days of a veteran archaeologist and his pact with the dead; the fortunes of a vagrant band of Crusaders in the New World; Henry James's eyewitness account of the War of the Worlds; a brilliant icy sheen over the Occupied Zone – and a spooky patch of great darkness; the vanishing of the mighty capital of a great empire – and its reappearance as modern-day Chicago … and much more, including the only science-fiction homage to J.R.R. Tolkien ever written.
"There are two things that abide; absolute awe at Silverberg's capacity for creating images … and the compassion that colours every word"
"Silverberg's invention is prodigious"
TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
"We travel in the hands of the master…Silverberg succeeds brilliantly in conveying the unknowable strangeness of the universe."
