Master of the Asteroid by Clark Ashton Smith:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

"Many authors, we believe, have not paid sufficient attention in their description of interplanetary adventures, to the mental and physical effects of travel through space. Mr. Smith sets out to remedy that fault - and to give us in some detail the inner life of space travellers.

('Master of the Asteroid' by Clark Ashton Smith)

"The despair that must seize on men travelling, for all they know, through an infinite void; the fever of restlessness from being too long confined; the madness of suspicions directed against fellow travellers, all are things that may wreck the best planned expedition.

"And although chemists and physicists will labor long and well in making possible a successful journey to other worlds, the job has been but half done until some provision has been made to guard men against the dangers that lurk in themselves."
