Publisher's Summary

Future humanity has found the secret of faster-than-light travel, but it comes with great dangers. To minimize these dangers, man can pilot ships through the up-and-out with cats as their partners. Underhill shares his mind with his cat-partner, the Lady May, and must travel to the terrible open places between the stars. Only by working together can they defend themselves and the ship's passengers against the dragons in the emptiness of space.

How to meet the love of your life

I heard plot of this short story described in the Great Courses’ “How Science Fiction Works” and just had to read it.

I found it much better than the average sci-fi short story. I don’t want to reveal any spoilers, so I’ll just say it’s a great golden-era sci-fi story with a likeable main character, very cool concepts, and a neat ending.

I recommend it to fans of sci-fi and short stories.
