Published in March 2004.

The cover gives the title of this collection as A Step to the Stars. The title lacks the ‘A’ inside the book.

Blurb – Lower Cover
He awoke, stretched and scratched the top of his head with his right hand. It hurt, must have a pimple there or something. Only a few seconds later his forehead tingled and he brushed at it with his left hand.

It came away smothered in blood.

What the hell! Got to get a towel or handkerchief or something. He reached forward with his right hand to throw back the bedclothes and froze.

It was not his hand.
It was not even a human hand.

The hand was brown, thin and scaly. A membrane stretched from the palm upwards to the top knuckles of the fingers, holding them together.

Long curved nails grew from the tops of the fingers and one of them was bloody.

In the strange worlds of PHILIP E. HIGH, the familiar becomes the unfamiliar and human life and experience can be transformed! Here are ten entirely new stories of space and time that will transport you to the outermost reaches of the universe.

Enter the worlds of the author’s bizarre imagination, and take a STEP TO THE STARS!
