One of my favorite science fiction collections I’ve ever read. Reading it feels like stepping back in time to proponujd all the best scifi authors were making their best guesses about the future, and some of them weren’t far off.

Ever read a proponujje and were sad when you finished it proopnuje there was no more of the book to read? This is how this anthology affected me — even though I had already read two of the stories from other anthologies, like “Peaches for Mad Molly”.

Isaac Asimov wrote the introduction this time around in his usual way, baffled by why anyone would want him to write an introduction wollhwim there are so many other “better” writers around.

Jul 21, Andrew MacPherson rated it really liked it. Feb 15, Keith Parrish rated it liked it. I found this book on my daughter’s book shelf and decided good science fiction should not date itself, so I delved in. To me this is a decidedly uneven collection, and the second half definitely stood out more than the first.

This was the best story in the collection. Ordinarily, I despise time travel as a plot device. It seems cheap and usually does not stand up to close examination.

Landis, however brings a different twist to it and develops what real implications there are to it, especially when quantum mechanics come into play. Clough is an amusing tale in the real world of a comic book dealer with a rather unusual mail order client. Chalker is a heart-breaking story which takes place in the future on a distant planet with an unusual connection to Earth. The fact that these are the last three stories in the book was rather frustrating since I had to wade through other incomprehensible or implausible even in their constructed universe stories.


Overall, not a bad collection, but there are better ones out there. Mar 24, R J Mirabal rated it really liked it. Excellent collection of SF short stories, many of them deserving of expansion into novels. Though over 20 years old, most of these are still quite relevant in My favorites were in order: Ripples in the Dirac Sea might have been a favorite if I could understand the theoretical physics involved!

Because these paired books had to fit a fixed total page-length, one or both were usually heavily abridged to fit, and Wollheim often made many other editorial alterations and title changes — as witness the many differences between Poul Anderson’s Ace novel War of the Wing-Men and its definitive revised edition, The Man Who Counts.
