Publication history:


This story is a frustrating combination of fascinating and annoying. The future post-apocalypse society is really interesting, a convincing portrayal of an unusual and peaceful people. The twentieth century man unexpectedly thrown into the future is greedy, selfish, and downright obnoxious (which I suppose is the point, but that doesn't mean I like it). There are some signs of the lyrical writing Silverberg would later develop.
