Note: According to Peter Nicholls this is a fix-up of "The Great Engine","The Wonderful Man" (under the title "The Changeling"), and "The Beast" originally published in ''Astounding Science Fiction'' 1943, 1944. According to Icshi:
  • Chapters 1-5: "The Great Engine" 1943;
  • Chapters 5-11: The Changeling 1944;
  • Chapters 12-13: linking material;
  • Chapters 14-31 & Epilogue: "The Beast" 1943.
Icshi writes: "each story has undergone substantial revision", but "The Changeling was thoroughly re-written."
