Edited by Martin H. Greenberg.

Robots always follow humans' orders. But is it for good or ill...? The ability to make a living duplicate of someone has real appeal. But can a duplicate be too perfect...? The problems on Earth can be avoided by sending people into space to found new homeland. But what happens to the generations born in the ships...? The human mind is a wondrous thing. But can it be shared with another species...?

These are among the questions that science fiction writers drew out of events in the War Years, the second decade of AMAZING Stories, the world's first and oldest science fiction magazine.

Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Ralph Milne Farley, Stanley Weinbaum, John Wyndham – these are among the great writers who first tested their ideas and talents during these years when life on Earth was so troubled.
