Contains the complete serialization of Isaac Asimov's Sucker Bait. Contains the complete serialization of Poul Anderson's novel Question and Answer. Both of those short novels were originally intended to be published together in a book, along with a third short novel by James Blish (or his wife Virginia Kidd). All three short novels were to be set on the same world, invented by a real scientist. The book was the brainchild of editor Fletcher Pratt, but the book was never published because the Blish/Kidd piece was never written. Both Poul's Question and Answer and Asimov's Sucker Bait were eventually published in book form, though not together. Asimov's piece was adapted as an episode of the BBC series Out of the Uknown.
