Out of nowhere came these grim, cold, black-clad men, to kidnap three Earth people and
carry them to a weird and terrible world where a man could be a giant at will.
Lee Anthony crouched and set himself to
resist the attack of the robed men.
Opening: The old woman was dying. There could be no doubt of it now. Surely she would not last through
the night. In the dim quiet bedroom he sat watching her, his young face grim and awed. Pathetic business,
this ending of earthly life, this passing on. In the silence, from the living room downstairs the gay
laughter of the young people at the birthday party came floating up. His birthday—Lee Anthony, twenty-one
years old today. He had thought he would feel very different, becoming—legally—a man. But the only difference now,
was that old Anna Green who had been always so good to him, who had taken care of him almost all his life, now was dying.

So Old Testament preachy for such a short sci-fi entry.
