What a thing of beauty the Ace Doubles were (and still are). I love the old covers, and the ability to read those works that might otherwise be lost, or fleshed out to meet some minimum word standard, or mangled in many other potential ways. This novella was published again, just this year 2013), with additional works by Delaney.

This was one of Delaney's first works, and more fantasy than science fiction, but the language presaged his later works. Read it for its beauty. ( )
