Published twelve years after the demise of New Worlds magazine, this was the first in a series of science fiction anthologies. It contains an introduction by Michael Moorcock who once edited the magazine, a couple of articles about sf and 10 stories all dating from 1991.

My two favourites were:

"Heat" by J. D. Gresham - Heat does strange things to women . . . and men.
"Ubermensch!" by Kim Newman - It gave me a big start when I realised just who it was incarcerated in Spandau Prison in this German Expressionist version of Berlin.

After getting a bit damp in my bag during one of the recent rainstorms, sections started coming away from the spine and then individual pages started falling out. It didn’t even get wet enough to make the pages crinkly, so the binding can’t have been very good quality. Unfortunately it had to be binned. ( )
