Three masterful alien-contact novellas. In the title piece, three space-travelers happen upon a world where a bizarre, intruding alien transport system has distorted the local civilization into a brutal, horrifying feudalism: Nazi-style overlords; peasants; and criminals who are condemned for "wanting strange things," then consigned to ghastly extermination camps. "The Kid from Hell" follows the rehabilitation of vicious child soldier Gack (born and raised on a planet where mindless warfare is endemic) after he's brought to an Earth of 22th century. And "Space Mowgli": a team of scientists, rendering a near-lifeless planet fit to accommodate homeless humanoids, discovers a crashed spaceship and an eerie, elusive child survivor; weird, provocative encounters ensue, as the scientists puzzle over the Kid (is he an alien? a construct? a modified human?); and the Kid - who has a human conscious mind but an alien subconscious - struggles to reconcile this...
