COVER TEXT:
Three kinds of people, Humans, Amphibs, and the Ssassarors lived side by side on a colonial planet where each of the three species were becoming more like the others, while their important traits were being lost in a form of genetic assimilation.
The three were on the verge of something disastrous and only one man knew the answers - Rastignac, the imprisoned outlaw. It was he who had plotted against the idiot kings and had sought to reintroduce aggression and the Philosophy of Violence. Rastignac, that devil, claimed he would thus save the humans. But first he set out literally to scare them out of their skins!
That's but one of the utterly unusual science fiction stories that make up this collection.
