An SF Gateway eBook: bringing the classics to the future.
The Earthmen came to Nidor and the most important thing they brought with them was - change.
Change in old-age ways of living. Change in a culture that had been static for centuries. But they were not unopposed for there was a strong underground reactionary movement which believed that the planet was destined to disappear completely into violent chaos - unless something was done about it.
