Indeholder "Introduktion", "Robert Sheckley: Form", "Bernard I. Kahn: Kommando", "Ray Bradbury: Navngiverne", "Keith Laumer: Plagen", "Fritz Leiber: En spand luft", "L. Sprague de Camp: Levende forstening", "J. A. Winter: Ekspedition Polykrom", "Keith Laumer: Ultimatum".
"Introduktion" handler om hvad novellerne er valgt ud fra. Det er "hvad nu, hvis ..." fortællinger.
"Robert Sheckley: Form" handler om at frihed er et stærkt forsvar.
"Bernard I. Kahn: Kommando" handler om hvordan det er at have en psykopat til at passe luftforsyningen ombord i et rumskib.
"Ray Bradbury: Navngiverne" handler om hurtig tilpasning til Mars.
"Keith Laumer: Plagen" handler om ubudne gæster og hvordan man slipper af med dem.
"Fritz Leiber: En spand luft" handler om at overleve på Jorden selv om den er blevet flyttet ud i Plutos afstand.
"L. Sprague de Camp: Levende forstening" handler om at den sidste menneskebestand bliver betragtet som bevaringsværdige af abeforskere.
"J. A. Winter: Ekspedition Polykrom" handler om behandling af sygdom der giver blå hud og iltmangel.
"Keith Laumer: Ultimatum" handler om at bluffe sig til magten over nogle bøller.
Novellen "Form" eller "Shape" som den hedder på engelsk er klart den bedste. "Levende forstening" er næstbedst. Resten er kun nogenlunde gode noveller.
Originaltitlerne er "Shape", "Command", "The Naming of Names", "The Plague", "A Pail of Air", "Living Fossil", "Expedition Polychrom", "Ultimatum". ( )
