Venn, a fickle and restless young musician, is drawn to the "lost planet" of Habille where, it is said, human nature has changed, and love once experienced can never die.

This story was announced the winner of the 1982 Nebula Award in the category short story. Tuttle, who had tried to have the story withdrawn from consideration, subsequently refused to accept the award.

The story was originally published in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, May 1981 and can also be found in the collection A Spaceship Built of Stone and Other Stories (1987).
