A collection of 14 sf short stories, published in 1965; all of them are by men, and most are from the early sixties, but the two standout pieces, "The Marching Morons" by Cyril Kornbluth and "Barrier" by Anthony Boucher, are both a bit older (1951 and 1942 respectively). It may just be the editors' taste, but an awful lot of these seemed to be set in future dystopias with a strong distrust and dislike of the common herd. The collection is prefaced by an interview with C.S. Lewis conducted by Kingsley Amis and Brian Aldiss. ( )
