About this title


In science fiction circles, the work of William Tenn is noted, oddly enough, for its scarcity. (Among other things, we hasten to add.) Perhaps this has been because each succeeding story was hailed with such rare delight that the legend of scarcity became self-reinforcing. In fact, over the years, Mr. Tenn has been reasonably prolific, consequently we are able to bring a group of five volumes containing the best of his published works -- a remarkable and happy occasion all by itself. But in addition, and in delighted triumph, Ballantine books presents this six volume, completely original, and so far only full-length science fiction work by William Tenn. In Of Men and Monsters, he manages to weave a fine sense of the dramatic into an overall theme which exemplifies Tenn at his ironic best -- a clear eyed tribute to the audacity, shrewdness, stupidity, courage and ultimate ineradicability of the human pest.
