Un venusiano affascinato dalla semplicità di una donna terrestre; una macchina del tempo che permette a un assassinato di farsi vedere ancora in vita; un risultato elettorale cambiato in modo imprevedibile; un uomo che esige di essere maledetto e non immagina le conseguenze assurde del suo gesto; una razza di terribile creature che si annida nel deserto ueste e altre avventure ci.
