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 completely via robots, ever in view that his send crashed here.
Now one other send has crashed, and there's back a unmarried survivor—a girl who's desirous to warn Earth of an alien invasion.
But Birk is completely pleased with his present exile—until a coincidence 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
