One and Wonder: Piers Anthony's Remembered Stories

Book

Piers Anthony presents a compendium of the Golden Age science fiction classics that inspired his astonishing career—timeless tales by Isaac Asimov, Jack Williamson, Walter M. Miller Jr., and other early SF masters.

In One and Wonder, Anthony invites readers to experience the same amazing tales that moved him in his youth, beginning with the first science fiction story he ever read: Jack Williamson’s “The Equalizer,” in which the members of a space mission return to Earth after twenty years only to discover that the world they left is gone forever. Anthony continues on to Theodore Sturgeon’s disturbing tale of an alien virus that literally turns people inside out, Isaac Asimov’s fable of a dangerous automaton hiding among masses of seemingly identical but more-benign machines, and seven more prime examples of Golden Age speculative and fantasy fiction, as breathtakingly inventive and unforgettable today as when they first mesmerized a young Piers Anthony.
