Műfajtörténeti visszapillantásnál – s egy nagyszabású sorozat első darabjaként – így is van ez rendjén. Asimov az 1953-as esztendő legszebb, legértékesebb, legmeghökkentőbb történeteit rendezte kötetbe. A „remekművek” megjelölés aligha könyvkereskedői túlzás: ezek az iskolateremtő alkotások ma egytől egyig klasszikus daraboknak számítanak.

S még ekkor sem fogadja el az igazságot, mellyel pedig minden nő tisztában van: hogy a titkos okkult hadviselésben, mely az életünket uralja, a boszorkányság élet-halál kérdése. Sötét Anyánk Franz Westen, a középkorú, San Francisco-i horrorszerző hosszabb alkoholtúra után nekiáll, hogy újra felfedezze a hétköznapi világot. Aztán egy napon egy közeli dombról megpillantja saját ablakát, ahonnan egy sápadt, barna alak integet neki. Az élmény Westent ősi könyvek és modern utcák sorozatain hajszolja keresztül, hogy felkutassa a sötét erőket és paramentális jelenéseket, melyek az égig tornyosuló felhőkarcolók közt lakoznak… miközben ezek is vadásznak őrá.
