Top Customer Reviews
The collection was first issued in the early sixties and the stories themselves come from the forties and fifties. SF is a rapidly changing medium and, with an average age of half a century, many of these stories now show their age. But that does not really detract from their quality. After all, this collection features the greatest SF talents of the era.
If forced to pick a favourite from the collection, I'd choose "The Available Data on the Worp Reaction" by Lion Miller but there are so many good tales in here that naming one alone is an injustice to the others.
Also read Jorge Luis Borges "Labyrinths" (one anthology) for a better treatment of the same theme (short stories with a sci-fi element).
