Edited by Douglas Angus and Sylvia Douglas, this volume contains twenty-three stories by some of the most important writers at work in the middle of the twentieth century. As Sylvia and Douglas Angus write in their introduction: "These stories present a fascinating psychological record of what may best be termed "The Age of Crisis', the age in which modern man finds himself teetering on a fine edge of destiny, when his own fateful decisions will take him either to hell or to paradise."
