In the middle-distant future, Andrew Blake, discovered huddled inside a capsule orbiting a remote star, is brought back to Earth suffering from total amnesia. Over 200 years old, he thinks and acts like a man, but becomes frighteningly aware of two alien beings that lurk within his body - a strange biological computer, and a wolf-like animal. Dangerously possessed, Blake breaks out of the hospital to look for his past... This is a science fiction novel that resonates with today's science fact so eerily closely, it will challenge and delight readers. This is Sci-Fi Master Simak at his powerful best.

Clifford Donald Simak (August 3, 1904 April 25, 1988) was an American science fiction writer. He was honored by fans with three Hugo Awards and by colleagues with one Nebula Award. The Science Fiction Writers of America made him its third SFWA Grand Master and the Horror Writers Association made him one of three inaugural winners of the Bram Stoker Award for Lifetime Achievement.Review:
A great book that deals with the philosophical meanings of humanity and identity. Even though the beginning may start you out thinking this is a werewolf tale, it is not. Andrew Blake is human, but he is also more than that. The internal dialogue between the main character's inner selves is brilliantly realized, and even has a bit of humor thrown in to help alleviate the inherent anxiety. The personalities found within the talking flying houses, with each room being unique, is amusing as well as memorable. I found this book to be imaginative and whimsical, and enjoyed the story. --Good Reads
