    1. Introduction (Spectrum III) • (1963) • essay by Kingsley Amis and Robert Conquest Killdozer! • (1944) • novella by Theodore Sturgeon The Voices of Time • (1960) • novelette by J. G. Ballard Call Me Joe • (1957) • novelette by Poul Anderson We Would See a Sign • (1963) • shortstory by Mark Rose Dreams Are Sacred • (1948) • novelette by Peter Phillips Exploration Team • [Colonial Survey] • (1956) • novelette by Murray Leinster Fondly Fahrenheit • (1954) • novelett [...]

    2. Better than average introduction by Amis who as a writer is definitely a cut above the usual science fiction anthologist. The stories, by eight established authors are uneven, some quite good, others not. Killdozer, despite its improbably theme (an malevolent steam shovel), is excellent, reminding one of how very good Theodore Sturgeon could be.
