Description:

The story concerns Ardath, the last member of a dying race from a doomed planet, his ship downed on earth millions of years in our past, his mission to wait until intelligent life develops, then select the brightest of the race in various time periods, breed them into a super race, and recreate the splendour of his own long-lost civilisation on Earth.

The plan goes terribly wrong when one of his first specimens turns out to be a power-mad and brutal, but crafty, barbarian who acquires Ardath's scientific knowledge and conceals the fact from his 'benefactor,' waiting for the chance to seize control of Ardath's orbiting space ark and use its advanced capabilities to conquer the planet.

Author Bio for Kuttner, Henry

Author Image

Henry Kuttner USA (1914 - 1958) Husband of C L Moore

aka Keith Hammond, Lawrence O'Donnell, Lewis Padgett

Henry Kuttner was alone and in collaboration with his wife, the great science fiction and fantasy writer C.L. Moore, one of the four or five most important writers of the 1940's, the writer whose work went furthest in its sociological and psychological insight, to making science fiction a human as well as technological literature. He was an important influence upon every contemporary and every science fiction writer who succeeded him. In the early 1940's and under many pseudonyms, Kuttner and Moore published very widely through the range of the science fiction and fantasy pulp markets.--goodreads.com.
