FOUR AWARD-WINNING STORIES

THE SALIVA TREE, by Brian W. Aldiss
An invasion of invisible monsters strikes terror on an English farm.

HE WHO SHAPES, by Roger Zelazny
The science of tomorrow makes possible a new kind of psychiatrist—one who can enter another human mind and reshape it...if he dares!

THE DOORS OF HIS FACE, THE LAMPS OF HIS MOUTH, by Roger Zelazny
A man measures his courage against a Venusian sea monster the size of a thirty-story building.

"REPENT, HARLEQUIN!" SAID THE TICKTOCKMAN, by Harlan Ellison
A John Birch world of the future where tardiness takes time off your life, and a joker who's never on time throws jelly-beans into the clockworks.

Four Distinguised Runners-up:

THE DROWNED GIANT, by J.G. Ballard
COMPUTERS DON'T ARGUE, by Gordon R. Dickson
BECALMED IN HELL, by Larry Niven
BALANCED ECOLOGY, by James H. Schmitz

"The stories in this book...show the quality of modern science fiction, its range, and, I think, its growing depth and maturity. Science fiction has come a long way." —DAMON KNIGHT
