From the Publisher

Alfred Bester (1913-87) was born in New York and educated at the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia. He was a scriptwriter and journalist by profession but he set the science fiction world alight with The Demolished Man and The Stars My Destination and his extraordinary short stories in the 1950s, and blazed a trail for the sf New Wave of the 1960s and the cyberpunk writers of the 1980s. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the worst Sci-Fi novel, but nowhere near the best. Decidedly mediocre (and I'm being generous)
