There are not many books that a reader can read that introduce the reader to a whole new universe, a universe so rich and diverse it puts every other science fiction book to shame.
From scanners to mutants, from Hunters to unknown wars to cats who protect spaceships to cats who've become human to hermaphodite human mutants to god machines to animal human mutations to wars fought by telepathic girls to murderous space entities, the universe Mr. Smith creates spans thousands of years and offers a bleak but enticing view into the future.
This collection of stories offers a glimpse into that universe, a glimpse that shows how the human soul will survive and adapt to a future alien to everything we know.
This is a must read for any hardcore science fiction fan.
