Description

The Music Of The Spheres

by Stuart J. Byrne

Gene Roddenberry, Star Trek creator, said he'd "wait in line in the rain for one of Stu Byrne's stories." But you don't have to stand in line in the rain to read them! Read all this legendary 1950s sf author's stories in this first-ever collection brought to you exclusively by Renaissance E Books. These sf classics have never reprinted and were all but unobtainable for fifty years. Drawn from pages of magazines whose very titles evoke sf's golden age (Other Worlds, Imagination, Amazing, Science Stories, etc.), these are true "sense-of-wonder" epics that will hold you fascinated even as they provoke you to think. With his unique blend of adventure, romance, hard science and metaphysics, Byrne was one of the greatest, and most readable, sf writers of his age. Now you can read lost classics like "A Space Ship Named Desire, " in which a spaceman begins to wonder if the soul of his dead wife might have begun to haunt his ship; the powerful off-world love story, "Beware the Star Gods"; the haunting novelette of a harsh dictator's strange encounter with fate, "The Bridge"; the hilarious spoof of alien invasions, "Gsrthnxrpqrpf: and others. Plus, as a special bonus, you will find the first ever publicaton of three stories with themes so hot, they were rejected as too controversial by sf editors of the time! "The Man who Challenged God" is quite literally about what the title says; while "The Ghost of Future-Past" may be the most metaphysical sf story every written; discover for yourself the then taboo topic of "A Star Fell on Okajuma." This first-ever edition of The Music of the Spheres contains a special introduction by the author, as well as introductions to the individual stories. Decide for yourself if Gene Roddenberry was right! After reading this collection, maybe you'll find yourself willing to stand in line in the rain just to read another book by Stuart J. Byrne.
