This collection of Frederik Pohl stories left me disappointed. The title story "Day Million," which describes a brief courtship in a far future very different from today, is the best of the bunch. "Small Lords," about a group of explorers that encounter small, but deadly problems on an uncharted planet, and ""Way Up Yonder,"" about a plantation planet during an interstellar war, were passable. The rest were middling to worse. The final story, "Under Two Moons," was a James Bond spoof that seemed to be almost deliberately awful; only a very funny scene where the hero met the arch villain across the casino table for a high stakes game of . . . Monopoly! saved this story from a truly awful rating. "Speed Trap" is based on an idea that the brothers Stugatsky would use much more effectively in their novel Definitely Maybe. In sum, a few decent stories, but far from Pohl at his best. ( )
