"Twenty-two SF and fantasy stories, including 'The Fog Horn,' about a sea monster that loves a fog horn; 'The Pedestrian,' the classic tale of a walker who is lonely because everyone is watching television; 'A Sound of Thunder,' where a time-safari to hunt tyrannosaurus rex alters the present because a hunter accidentally kills a butterfly; and the title story, about a spaceship that flies into the Sun's atmosphere to capture part of its substance. Emphasis on message and characters, rather than science." (Barron: Anatomy of Wonder  150)
