By Stephen Goldin
A misplaced vintage of technology fiction.
Birk Aaland is a political outcast from Earth's tyranny, and has been residing for years on a planet inhabited exclusively via robots, ever for the reason that his send crashed here.
Now one other send has crashed, and there's back a unmarried survivor—a lady who's desirous to warn Earth of an alien invasion.
But Birk is completely pleased with his present exile—until a accident intervenes, inflicting every one of them to reconsider their lives and their overall existence.
"The tale profits an emotionality that justifies calling Goldin an artist, no longer in basic terms a writer." —Tom Easton, Analog Magazine
Originally released 1981 by means of Doubleday.

It’s no wonder the food is good when you see where Croatia lies on a map – right in the centre of Europe and spread along the beautiful Dalmatian Coast. Dotted near the coast are many islands, where the food is heavily influenced by the Mediterranean and dishes like risotto and polenta have been adapted to suit Croatian palates. For instance an Italian-inspired seafood stew called a brodet is traditionally served over soft polenta; and a rich, black risotto is made using squid ink. Almost every Croatian we met who had grown up by the sea told us they started fishing almost before they could walk, which is impressive.
