I have read this book 5 years ago. The stories are great and the writing techniques superb. Some stories are only a page long and yet they will stay in your head for a long long time. I loaned my first copy to a friend and he lost it! Bought the second copy from Amazon and promised myself not to lend it out again!
Read it and get hooked to Science Fiction if you are not already a fan.

The only complaint about this book is that the stories are sometimes so short that the characters cannot be developed. But the themes are excellent. Like poetry, just the skeletal outline of the plot will please you. Three of my favorites (relying on memory, I read this book years ago) were A.C. Clarke's story of the haunted space suit, "Columbus is a dope" by ? (both ironically comical) and the provocative "hunted aliens". I think the excellent "Time Machine and Dinosaur Hunter" story is in here too, but I'm not sure.
Also read Jorge Luis Borges "Labyrinths" (one anthology) for a better treatment of the same theme (short stories with a sci-fi element).
