Book Summary

Like 1984 and Brave New World, Einstein's Monsters projects a harrowing vision of a imminent, though not inevitable, future for humankind.  These powerfully imagined stories depict the world before and after a nuclear holocaust.  From "The Little Puppy That Could," a bizarre evolutionary fable about a dragonlike canine, to "The Immortals," in which the whole of human history winds down to the deranged recollections of a dying man, these stories present a vivid, frightening world inhabited by "Einstein's monsters, not fully human"--people dehumanized by the threat of nuclear war as well as postwar survivors deformed by its results.  Together with the provocative introductory essay, "Thinkability," these stories are an impassioned protest against nuclear warfare and a compelling reaffirmation of the value of human life.
