    I had long thought that Philip K Dick s 1964 66 period was the most intensely productive and prolific streak that any sci fi author of note has ever enjoyed, with nine major novels produced during those three years But as it turns out, Robert Silverberg, seven years P.K s junior, has got him beat by a mile During the three year period 1967 69

    At first, I thought this book was going to be a 5 star Just like Heinlein s Stranger in a Strange World, we are introduced to the same type of intriguing main character, Vornan 19, fraud or time traveler, and he starts out by doing and saying really interesting things If only Silverberg could have sustained the interest he generated in his premise After the introduction
