THE FUTURE WILL BE STRANGER THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE . . .
• In a post-apocalyptic world, telepaths are common, but young Starn had no trace of telepathic ability, and was persecuted by those who had the talent—until he discovered he possessed an even more unusual ability.
• A criminal mastermind has been captured by the Space Patrol, and a Patrol ship is carrying him to a prison planet. Escape seems impossible, but he has a secret weapon. It's only waterÃ¢€”but water with a very unusual property.
• In the afterlife, it turns out that one's existence is dependent on being remembered by the living. As you are forgotten, you shrink. How do you avoid this? Why, hire an unearthly public relations firm, of course.
These stories and more, including two full-length novels, fill a large volume of entertaining space adventure and humorous fantasy by a writer noted for original ideas developed with a sardonic wit.
"Howard Myers possessed a voice . . . witty and message-rich. . . . His rescue from the moldering pages of Analog and other 'zines of his day is a welcome treat. . . . What Myers might have accomplished with a longer life remains in doubt; the treasures he left behind are incontestable."
