A misplaced vintage of technological know-how fiction.
Birk Aaland is a political outcast from Earth's tyranny, and has been dwelling for years on a planet inhabited completely via robots, ever given that his send crashed here.
Now one other send has crashed, and there's back a unmarried survivor—a girl who's wanting to warn Earth of an alien invasion.
But Birk is completely proud of his present exile—until a accident intervenes, inflicting each one of them to think again their lives and their overall existence.
"The tale profits an emotionality that justifies calling Goldin an artist, now not in simple terms a writer." —Tom Easton, Analog Magazine
Originally released 1981 via Doubleday.
