Summary

Summary

Untouched by Human Hands consists of thirteen stories of beings who dwell on the strange borders of reality. Some of these stories tell of people you know or of events that might happen—but haven’t yet. Some will take you to the furthermost reaches of the sky and to planets whose names are unknown this side of Arcturus. And some—perhaps the richest and most memorable of these stories—open into the interior of strange minds to reveal the reflection of ourselves.

This classic collection consists of the following short stories:

  • “The Monsters”
  • “Cost of Living”
  • “The Altar”
  • “Shape”
  • “The Impacted Man”
  • “Untouched by Human Hands”
  • “The King’s Wishes”
  • “Warm”
  • “The Demons”
  • “Specialist”
  • “Seventh Victim”
  • “Ritual”
  • “Beside Still Waters”

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Mr. Sheckley—as might be expected of a writer who can wring praise from as diverse a group of peers as Kingsley Amis, Harlan Ellison, John le Carré, and J. G. Ballard—has an engagingly madcap manner all his own.” Wall Street Journal, praise for the author
“Sheckley has long been considered one of the genre’s leading humorists.” New York Times, praise for the author
