      Optimism is the prevailing note in Spectrum 5, which consists of eight uncommonly substantial sotries, most with a happy and sometimes an exhilarating ending. Among other matters, they deal with how humanity graduates into Galactic society; how twenty-eight days on the Moon completely change a spaceman's concept of life; how a precocious youth brings about communication between alien cultures on a remote planet; and how, scientifically, the impossible is achieved in about two weeks.
