Orig. publ. separately as Penguin science fiction (1961), More Penguin science fiction (1963), and Yet more Penguin science fiction (1964) ( )
  ME_Dictionary | Mar 19, 2020 |
It took me a little while to work through what is, here, quite a large collection of science fiction - but it's worth the effort. I'm especially pleased to have returned to my early days as a sci-fi afficionado, and to have rediscovered writers I'd long forgotten about, or who I had never read.

That said, it's quite unsettling sometimes to read so many short stories in so many different worlds. Each story distillates the purpose of science fiction down to its bare essentials, and my head swam when I tried to read more than two or three in a day. ( )
