    Abner Harris came to Earth on a mission of extreme urgency. A subject of the Spirit had no right to question his orders. And his orders said that the universe was in danger of enslavement by the pebble-skinned Medlins. And that the fight against their evil scheming called for him to assume the guise of a flesh-and-blood Earthman. But once in that new synthetic body, he made a mind-bending discovery: the real villains of space were neither the Medlins nor the people of Earth, but his own kind!
