Wide variety of speculative short stories, arranged by date of publication and including all the heavy hitters: Sturgeon, Pohl, Fritz Leiber, Paul Anderson, Zenna Henderson, James Tiptree Jr., Gene Wolfe, Joanna Russ, Harlan Ellison, Philip K. Dick, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Greg Bear, Octavia Butler, Connie Willis, Margaret Atwood. Missing: Robert Heinlein and Neil Gaiman (maybe Neil was too young). A book to dip into again and again. Introduction by Ursula. ( )

This is a decent anthology that demonstrates Ursula Le Guin's preferences for academic studies of SF. I see that BlueTysonSS has put together a sort of story-by-story score-card, so I thought I would just add the authors that I would have given priority but that are not represented. I call it

The Missing:

Brian Aldiss
Kingsley Amis
Isaac Asimov (Isaac Asimov!? I tell you, there is no excuse for this omission!!)
J. G. Ballard (His yarn 'The Subliminal Man' used to be one of the two most anthologized short stories; the other being Isaac Asimov's 'Nightfall'....)
Alfred Bester (Alfred Bester?!?! Okay, but he is well represented in Babylon 5, as chief Psi Cop in Psi Corps).
Eando Binder
Ray Bradbury
Frederic Brown
L. Sprague De Camp
Thomas Disch (I understand that she offered to publish one of his, but he refused - see 'The Dreams Our Stuff is Made of,' p. 131, bottom.)
Jack Finney
Harry Harrison
Robert Heinlein
James P. Hogan
Stanislaw Lem
George R. R. Martin
Andre Norton
Rebecca Ore
Eric Frank Russell
John Sladek
Sherri S. Tepper
Joan Vinge
Walter Jon Williams
William Tenn

Admittedly, Le Guin (or someone) decided that the start-year for the anthology was to be 1960, and it was to be an American anthology. This really sort of leaves half of the entire genre out in the cold. Still, I give it: ( )
