Science Fiction in the News Articles
Related to material in Time is the Simplest Thing
by Clifford Simak

Another terrific novel; it has an unusual twist to the hard science fiction premise that machines will get us what we want. Shepherd Blaine, who travels to the stars in his mind, runs into someone (or something) he did not expect: an immortal creature who can unlock a new future for humanity. It was originally published as "The Fisherman".
