Sheckley, Robert, 1928-2005
Short story written by Sheckley, originally in 1954. This edition features illustrations by Bergtold, and is cut into the shape of a spaceship with an etched aluminum and vinyl case. "Robert Sheckley's moving story of inter-galactic cooperation and personal fulfillment answers the age-old question of why we go to war. This sweet amusing tale reveals mankind's true destiny and role in the Galactic Cooperation. At the center of the story is a space-ship, a living organism whose function is provided by the 'special' abilities of its crew-creatures from throughout the galaxies."--Included statement from the publisher.
