Publisher's Summary

Robert Sheckley, master of the science-fiction short-story form, created numerous tales of dark humor. He had an entertaining gift for looking at society with a warped mirror, enabling us to see ourselves in a clearer reflection.

"Keep Your Shape" is from the perspective of an alien race with the unseemly ability to change shape. In "The Seventh Victim", murder is legal and sanctioned by society, and the gunman's victim is a beautiful woman. And when a spaceship filled with diverse alien life forms is stranded without a star drive, they only have one chance of getting home again. That chance is with a "Specialist" from Earth.

These three works were originally published in Galaxy and The Magazine of Science Fiction and Fantasy in 1953.

    "Cool..."

    There doesn't seem to be enough of Robert Sheckley's sci-fi out there, but it's always good-to-great when I stumble across it. This is a pretty good rendering of 3 of his stories. I particularly liked "The Seventh Victim," but all three are enjoyable.

    Mark Douglas Nelson's narration is pretty good, but not great. The pacing is a little slow but otherwise good.
