Simak wrote science fiction during the same era as John Wyndham, one of my favorite authors, and this set of volumes has a similar feel. I've previously read Volume 1, which I thought was a better collection, but there are still some very entertaining stories here. The only caveat is the inclusion of western stories, present in both volumes. I do think most people read Simak for the genre in which they're interested, and in my case that's sci fi, so I skipped the westerns.

When reading mid-century sci fi the readers needs to accept that scientific fact is not necessarily going to be adhered to (for me that's part of the fun). Simak was no different, and it's a matter of whether a reader likes what is really rather pleasant but light-weight science fiction. It's nice to have SImak's stories all together, but perhaps the western stories might have fared better in a volume of their own. ( )
