Synopsis:
[Read by Stefan Rudnicki]

In this groundbreaking science fiction classic by Henry Kuttner, a descendant of survivors living on Venus seeks revenge on the decadant society that exiled him.

Beneath the rolling seas and deadly atmosphere of Venus are the Keeps - fully enclosed cities that house descendants of the survivors who first harbored atomic energy to escape a dying earth. In massive superstructures built beneath the Venusian seas, a complex feudal society devoted simply to decadence has evolved. Presiding over that society are Immortals - genetic throwbacks to the mutant atomic survivors. While the society is stable, the stability will only lead to its destruction, and the harsh environment outside the Keeps is malevolent and encroaching.

Born into it all is Sam Harker, son of an Immortal and the object of his father's disdain after his mother perished during childbirth. Sam is subjected to treatments which stunt his growth and leave him hairless, and he is exiled from the society of the Immortals and set on the tumultuous path of a rebel's life - one inspired by hatred and a desire for vengeance on the society.

Sam's search for revenge and his great abilities make him more powerful than the more decadent residents of the Keeps and perhaps even more powerful than the Immortals themselves. He seeks mass appeal as a politician in a campaign that assaults society. It is not until everything is destroyed - that is, in the aftermath of destruction - that the reclamation of human destiny is even a remote possibility.

 

About the Author: Henry Kuttner (1915-1958) made his first sale to Weird Tales in 1936 and began publishing science fiction stories the following year. In 1940 he married C. L. Moore, and they wrote many stories and novels together under a number of pseudonyms. Kuttner was the author of Fury, Mutant, the Baldy series, and the Hogpen series, among numerous other novels and short stories.
