    In the middle-distant future, Andrew Blake, discovered huddled inside a capsule orbiting a remote star, is brought back to Earth suffering from total amnesia. Over 200 years old, he thinks and acts like a man, but becomes frighteningly aware of two alien beings that lurk within his body - a strange biological computer, and a wolf-like creature. Dangerously possessed, Blake breaks out of the hospital to look for his past. What he discovers is a world that has no place for him.

    "The World That Couldn't Be" is a science fiction tale about a plantation owner on an alien world, who tracks the strange animal, Cytha, and gets a lesson in xeno-ecology. Excerpt: He plodded back across the field toward the house. Not much of a house as yet. Not a great deal better than a native shack. But someday it would be, he told himself. Let him sell a crop or two and he'd build a house that would really be a house. It would have a bar and swimming pool and a garden filled with flowers, and at last, after years of wandering, he'd have a home and broad acres and everyone, not just one lousy tribe, would call him mister.

    Mr. Jonathan Chambers senses that something is very wrong. The walk he takes every night is suddenly, slightly shorter. All around him things are vanishing. Is it because of the recent war or famine in the world? Does the scandalous theory that cost him his job hold the key? Or is it just the slowly unhinging mind of a recluse?

    "Hudson lay in his sleeping bag, staring at the sky. It bothered him a lot. There was not one familiar constellation, not one star that he could name with any certainty. This juggling of the stars, he thought, emphasized more than anything else in this ancient land the vast gulf of years which lay between him and the Earth where he had been-or would be-born." Enjoy a fantastic time travel short story by the master Clifford D. Simak! Published in 1955.
