Publisher's Summary

In "The Secret Sharer", a young untested officer is in command of a large starship carrying passengers in the form of digitized matrices. When a matrix breaks free of the storage circuit, crewmembers warn the young commander that the invisible matrix will try to inhabit a body. The novella We Are for the Dark is the story of the Lord Magistrate who is sent to the outer provinces of the galaxy to ensure that all is in the control of the Master. As he travels light years from his home on earth, he begins to lose his connection to his most deeply held beliefs about himself and God.

In "Good News from the Vatican", the world awaits the announcement of the next elected pope. Among the candidates is a robot cardinal. "Every era gets the pope they deserve," observes a bishop.

    "Held my interest"

    I loved the premise of "The Secret Sharer", and it was exceptionally well-written. The other two stories were a little meandering, and didn't seem to have much of a point.

    "Great stories, decent narration"

    There's something magical about Silverberg's best fiction--and the narration is decent enough, if a bit tinny sounding.
