De Sterren, Mijn Broeders – waar een geleerde, ontwaakt uit een eeuwenlange sluimer in de diepten van de ruimte, een keus moest maken tussen zijn eigen volk en een vreemd ras.
Hoe is het daar ? – toen Haddon terugkeerde van zijn expeditie van Mars, wilde iedereen weten hoe het was…Hij kon het nimmer vertellen.
