Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
When a strange starship appears mysteriously on a distant alien world, bearing only a single human and his bee-like extraterrestrial companion, the powerful warlord of that world laughs at the stranger's preposterous demand: End an all-out war with an interstellar rival, or face devastating consequences. But James Lawson, emissary from an intergalactic federation of advanced races, means every word he says, and has the power to back them up—whatever the cost.

Design for Great-Day is an extraordinary science fiction event, a remarkable collaboration between one of the giants of science fiction's Golden Age, and one of the most popular SF storytellers of our time.

"Russell's deceptively simple plot, embellished and brought up to date by Foster, refreshingly explores the classic SF theme of over-coming alien differences to eliminate war."
