This collection of science fiction stories written between 1934 and 1966 was published with the intention to "inspire curiosity" and "lead the student into lines of questioning of his own". To that end, Dr. Asimov followed each tale with a brief commentary and some questions related to the ideas used on the story. I originally bought this book for a high school course in science fiction. In that class, we never did use the questions, focusing instead on the literary aspects of the stories. Nor d ...more

Heinlein's "—And He Built a Crooked House—" always stuck with me. I forgot where I got this from, maybe my grandfather. Good collection.

'Surface Tension' and the 'Omnilingual' are the least dated, and Asimov's own contribution is one of the weaker stories in the collection. 'Surface Tension' is sort of like Baxter's Flux but underwater instead of on the surface of a neutron star.

I liked the several stories set on Mars which amounted to hard sf at the time but have many now-falsified details. Also good are stories about the very first astronauts, visits to the moon, or nuclear technology written only 5 or 10 years before real de

Příjemný výběr sci-fi povídek vybraných legendou žánru Isaacem Asimovem, který každou povídku doplnil komentářem a několika podnětnými otázkami pro zvídavce. Ačkoli poprvé vyšla již v roce 1974, většina z povídek je i pro dnešního čtenáře napsána čtivě a zábavně a žádnéfo fanouška sci-fi neurazí. Nejvíc mě zaujaly povídky Domeček jako klícka a Podzemní dráha Möbius.

Some tasty science fiction short stories. Though they are dated, the selection is fun to read because they deal with the philosophy of other races and of space exploration rather than how attractive aliens are to humans and whether they wear silver space suits. In that sense they have stayed remarkably current; I think the biggest difference is the language itself.

This is the first book of science fiction short stories I've read where each story was suffixed by a short discussion of the scientific principles and a set of questions for further study for the interested. It's a great idea. I wish more collections would do this.

Wow! This was the first book I ever bought when I was about 12 years old. I still have a copy of it. Stories by classic science fiction authors. What better way to jump start a young mind?
