...animated by a style of writing and a maturity of outlook almost as rare in the whole field of contemporary literature as in the tiny world of science fiction. - San Francisco Chronicle
Edgar Pangborn, brilliant and provocative author of science fiction fantasy, has not written many novels, but all have been widely praised on their first appearance, and are now considered classics. A MIRROR FOR OBSERVERS, which established Edgar Pangborn as a leading science fiction writer, is nearer to science fiction that to fantasy, although it won the International Fantasy Award.
The Martians, long exiled from their home planet, have for millennia been observers of the world of men. Forbidden by their laws to interfere with human destiny, they wait for mankind to mature.
From the turmoil of mid twentieth-century America, word come to the Observers that one of their renegades is hoping to encourage humanity in its headlong rush to self-destruction through the corruption of a single rare intellect. The struggle between Observer and Abdicator for the continuance of the human species is on of the classic conflicts in the annals of science fiction.
