Vintage science fiction tales from an American master
Big bugs, cloned cats, and feral star-children play leading roles in the seven stories that make up Fast’s unconventional and thought-provoking collection. The Edge of Tomorrow is a significant foray into science fiction by one of the 20th century’s most prolific novelists. In looking beyond our universe, Fast reveals much about the America of his time - where the Cold War and a nascent civil rights movement stoked unconscious fears and desires. From "The First Men", about scientists tampering with genetic engineering, to "The Large Ant", about a man’s thoughtless violence against nature, these stories are as relevant today as when they were first written.
