Nice mix of true classics, mainly hard sf with an emphasis on the psychological. Some favorites: "Rescue Party" by Arthur C. Clarke, "Common Time" by James Blish, "All You Zombies--" by Robert Heinlein, "Wall of Crystal, Eye of Night" by Algis Budrys, "Unready to Wear" by Kurt Vonnegut, "Impostor" by Philip K Dick, "Neutron Star" by Larry Niven, "Stranger Station" by Damon Knight, and "The Marching Morons" by C.M. Kornbluth.
Brian
A terrific sample of short stories ranging from the late 40s to the 70s. A well rounded mixture from authors as diverse as Larry Niven to James Triptree Jr,.

Highly recommended.
Scott Davis
