It was a safe world, a happy world made comfortable for its human population by the machines - and even the machines had now developed into likable, personable androids, so much more pleasant to deal with than harsh-looking metal monsters. No one questioned the existence of the operational androids who ran the cities, the services, even the government, any more than they questioned their own hedonistic existence.

Joel Dill, Administrator of the Citizen's Resettlement Bureau, was obviously some kind of a maverick. In fact, anyone less suitable for the job he held could hardly have been found. Which only proved something he had been suspecting for some time--to wit, that the machines which had monitored his whole life and which had passed him for the job were not all that efficient. Not only that, some of the decisions they were now making were downright absurd--and worse, inhumanly cruel. And there were so many of them. Could they all be mistakes? If not---?

Boyd Lassen was a man of decent instincts and no political ambitions. But once made an outcast by the primitive society founded on civilization's ashes, he had no choice but to lead the band of outsiders among which he was thrown.

The poisonous landscape must be soaked with men's blood before peace could ever be made
