A terrific collection of short stories, literally each one a classic. Highlights (although most of the stories are great) include 'Flowers for Algernon' by Keyes, the 'Star' by Clarke, 'I have no mouth and must Scream' by Ellison, 'Nightwings' by Silverberg, 'Time Considered as a Helix of Semi-Precious Stones'by Delany and possibly my favorite 'The Darfsteller' by Walter M. Miller, Jr.

I read these stories when I was a boy, many years later they haven't lost their impact. I could rave on and on about the quality of the stories contained within this book, it is amazing the quality of the Science Fiction short story during this time period. Pick the book up and read. ( )

This is a must-own collection, with many classic stories. To mention just a couple, there is Eric Frank Russel's "Allamagoosa", one of the funniest things I have ever read. The book also includes Daniel Keyes original (before he expanded it into a novel) version of "Flowers for Algernon", which is simply one of the best things anyone has written, period. ( )

I'm enjoyed the hell out of this book, and I'm not a sci-fi reader. Believe it or not, I took it from a colleague who was using it to prop up and display some specimens and instruments when teaching his lab class. The stories are intriguing, the characters eccentric, and the settings and plots out of another world; more importantly, the prose and wording doesn't saturate you with pseudo-scientific jargon. A real gem. ( )
