Henry Steegman is hardly "Mr. Personality" aboard the Mars-bound Algonquin 9. Yet it is he who bungles upon the spectacular Macy's-like city beneath the Red Planet's crust. For better or worse, the name Steegman will be immortalized by a discovery that will transform millions of lives. For a struggling screenwriter, the Martian beings could mean a big story, big bucks, headlines...and more women than any many his size has ever known... For an exhiled Russian rocket man, the are a possible route to America's space program, and the land of opportunity... For a flying-saucer faker of flickering fame, the possibilities are out of this world. In a brilliant near-future look at the human condition, Frederick Pohl has honed his satire-sharp science fiction to a steely new edge.

Life on Mars exists, and the world preparesin typical human fashionfor the arrival of its first aliens. UFO cultists, hucksters, politicians, and scientists fall prey to Pohl's acerbic talent. Sometimes vicious, sometimes touching, this collection of connected stories (some previously published in magazines) belongs in most sf collections. JC
