Back cover blurb:
Time whirls endlessly in an infinite stream around Man. In an attempt to escape war-ravaged earth, he launches himself into space. Robots inherit an infertile planet peopled with mutants. Finally, a superior intelligence from beyond space, takes over the dying earth.

Brian Aldiss says of these eleven stories: "they are all slices off the enormous carcass of the future, arranged chronologically from a date a century or two ahead, right up to the end of the galaxy".
