This is the best collection of science fiction short stories ever compiled. ( )
  Kitty.Cunningham | Jul 19, 2017 |
It has some of the best SF stories ever compiled. I'm not much on stories about kids, but this collection is more about humanity in general. It does a great job of pointing out our condition(s) through the stories of some of the best SF authors out there. I've read it several times, most of the stories more than once as they're in other books in my collection. I don't grow tired of them, though. Here's the list:Ray Bradbury: All Summer in a Day Robert Heinlein: The Menace From Earth Damon Knight: Cabin Boy Fritz Leiber: A Pail of Air Mark Clifton: Star Bright Lewis Padgett: When the Bough Breaks Robert Sheckley: The Accountant Stephen Vincent Benet: The Place of the Gods Clifford D Simak: No Life of Their Own Isaac Asimov: The Ugly Little Boy James H Schmitz: Novice Margaret St. Clair: Child of Void William Lee: Junior Achievement Will F Jenkins: The Little Terror Zenna Henderson: Gilead Gertrude Friedberg: The Wayward Cravat Philip K Dick: The Father-Thing Jerome Bixby: It's a Good LifeI got my copy when a library got rid of it for a quarter, I think. I see now that even a used copy on Amazon sells for $35. I think that says something about the book - it's worth the money! ( )

Eighteen classic tales, by authors including Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, Clifford D. Simak, Fritz Leiber and many more are included in this anthology edited by Isaac Asimov (His famous story "The Ugly Little Boy" is the last story.) An entertaining personal introduction to each story tells the reader how the tale affected Asimov, and why he included it. Although the characters of the stories are children or young people, the stories are not written for children. Some are humorous and light, some tragic and horrific. An unforgettable read. I wish it would come back into print so it could find a new audience! ( )
