Note that the contents of this collection are different from the similarly titled collection published in 1973 by Sidgwick & Jackson.

Here are the finest stories by the man who almost single-handedly created modern science fiction--the writer who taught a generation to dream...and to write of all possible futures.

He was a mere hitchhiker now, but he had once seen the far, far future... and had returned to mourn what he had seen!

The machine was ultimately benevolent that it gave mankind the ultimate but most unwanted gift!

They were like children in the museum of Earth's glorious past...children who had forgotten so much, but whose powers were those of gods!

And the classic that was to become the movie THE THING: WHO GOES THERE?
The Thing was the most dreadful threat men had ever faced...a creature that could be any one--or all--of them!

And many more!
