The World at the End of Time

by Frederick Pohl

This one's a dual tale--two stories for the price of one. The first track is the tale of Wan-To, an energy creature of great age and immense power who lives in fear of his murderous offspring. The second is about the life of Viktor Sorricaine, a boy who is on Earth's second colony ship, heading to a distant star to join the colony there. Like any colony, it offers the colonists a life of hard work and unknown dangers, but the biggest danger occurs when their solar system plays a role in Wan-To's family feud.

'Twas very good waiting room material.
