The 1970's are a period of creative ferment in the field of science fiction, and the three young men whose original novellas are included in this book are among the most highly regarded of the newer writers. All three belong unarguably to the literary generation of the 1970's. Aside from one story by Dozois that appeared in 1966, none of their work saw print professionally before 1970. They are still young.... Yet they are no novices; as evidence of this volume shows, their writing is skillful, evocative, thoughtful, occasionally profound. "And Us, Too, I Guess," by Geo. Alec Effinger, "Chains of the Sea," by Gardner R. Dozois, and "The Shrine of Sebastian," by Gordon Eklund, are published here for the first time any-where.

Despite the relative sparseness of their output to date, Effinger, Dozois, and Eklund have all been spoken of as potential winners of science fiction's highest awards for literary achievement. This book is a showcase for their talents, and the high quality of these three short novels will provide great reading pleasure and excitement.
