A collection of a few stories and an editorial by Ben Bova, commenting on the then current energy crisis and the non-justification for fears over the emerging genetic technologies. It is amazing that 33 years later this is still completely relevant!

The stories are varied, very much in the 'B' movie style, some better than others. All with little characterisation but implied technologies and their impact on society. However many are set in the early 2000s and are very optimistic in how far we've progressed. Two feature a more distopean outlook.

Entertaining, more as a historical perspective than for the quality of the stories but enjoyable enough in it's own rights. The pen and ink drawings are odd, and not always obviously related to the stories. ( )

63 • The Tripper • shortstory by Kevin O'Donnell, Jr.
A teenager who can teleport is used as a spy. Unfortunatedly the teenager thinks himself as a James Bond. Simple "joke-story", Nice, not event meant to great best story of all time, isn't bad.

71 • Anniversary Project • shortstory by Joe Haldeman
Farfuter beings evolved from humans learn to read by snatching a young couple from fifties. This is also simple, ok story. ***+

102 • Nuisance Value • shortstory by James White
Son doesn't give up trying to find what happened to his father, even when the nation is crumbling around him. At same time accompilishes something. ***

122 • Unnatural Causes or the Guy We Couldn't Help • novelette by Spider Robinson (aka Unnatural Causes) [as by Spider Robinson ]
Callahan's place story. Another alien with a secret arrives. Story takes too long to get moving, good, but not among the best Callahan's stories. ***½

147 • Sierra Maestra • shortstory by Norman Spinrad
Revolution by the slow way. Very good story, could have been a bit longer, even a novel? ***½

155 • In the High Court of Justice • shortstory by Lord St. Davids
Matter transmitted produces unintended legal results. Could have been good probability zero story, as such unlikely, a bit too long joke. *** ( )
