The Diploids

(1962)
And Other Flights of Fancy
A collection of stories by

 
 
Through Katherine MacLean's artistry and imagination you'll soar through space, you'll touch the stars, you'll bask in the glow of other suns...and you will be one with

- The long-legged lawyer who suspected that he was a Martian
- The boy who became all he characters in his make-believe games
- The sewing-circle ladies who took over the world
- The alien spacemen adrift in a raindrop
- The woman who discovered the terrible secret of immortality

There are other stories in this remarkable collection, but merely to describe them might give away their plots, and that is a dastardly crime punishable by indefinite exile on mysterious, fog-shrouded Planet X!
