The Counterfeit Man

A collection of stories by

Following the success of Tiger by the Tail came this new collection of short science fiction stories by Alan E. Nourse. The strange case of The Counterfeit Man is only one of the exciting adventures. Here, too, is Harry Scott, whose search for safety in a strange city of the future leads him into the arms of his enemies, and Chris Taber, who conquers the fear in his own mind, but will not tell others how he did it. You will also share the loneliness of Joe Baker, who has wandered the earth for decades yet cannot remember his own age, and Amy Ballantine, whose remarkable gift of second sight has made her a cripple in the world of ordinary people. You will attend a meeting of the board of directors of the Titanium Workers of America, and accompany James Wheatley as he seeks Än Ounce of Cure" and and find that these activities move you not only to laughter but to serious, frightening thought. In these pages are science fiction stories of all sorts - some humorous, some grim, some sentimental - but all marked by the richness of idea and variety of theme so characteristic of the work of this popular physician-writer.
