Summary, etc.: The five stories in this collection were all first published in 1954. In "Exhibit Piece" a long-suffering museum worker becomes a little too attached to his display of mid-twentieth century lifestyle. In "Upon the Dull Earth" a young man refuses to let go of his soul mate, and he creates a chain reaction that he couldn't have anticipated. In "Progeny" one man's idea of how to raise a child is challenged by new, more scientific techniques. "The Last of the Masters" explores a post-apocalyptic world, where anarchists don't just occupy Wall Street, they occupy the entire planet. Finally, in "Breakfast at Twilight", a family awakes to find theirs is the only house left on their street, and they are forced to make the most important decision of their lives.
