The notion of getting Isaac Asimov to introduce these collections must have seemed like a no-brainer: extra kudos and sales! But I'm sure Baen didn't predict an introduction like the one they got here, which is (whatever else it is) pretty entertaining. In summary, Asimov pretty much says 'I haven't read any SF for twenty years. Apparently this modern stuff is very literary and all, but personally I just like the kind of thing we used to write back in the day. Anyway, here are some stories that...more

great collection of sci-fi short stories.

Harlan Ellison's Paladin of the Lost Hour is a classic. One of Ellison's best stories.

Robert Silverberg's Gilgamesh in the Outback is wonderful. His writing flows off the page. A real pleasure to read.

My favorite short was Why I Left The All-Night Hamburger Place. Great story about interdimensional travelers. Like a great Twilight Zone episode.
Snail in Danger (Sid) Nicolaides
I stumbled across a copy of this in the free books bin. I was hoping it was Volume 3, though, so I tossed it back. This one has a rather odd introduction: it's basically Isaac Asimov saying the SF stories that readers vote for are too highbrow/literary/vulgar for him, so ... he really has nothing to say, so go read the stories.

slightly less impressive crop than the last volume. this covers all the hugo winning short fiction from '86,'87, and '88. The standouts for me were definitely Ellison's "Paladin of the lost hour", and "Tangents" by Greg Bear.

So good. If you like sci-fi, this is a must read. Amazing short stories and novellas from a bunch of great authors (Silverberg, Ellison, leGuin, Card before he became crazy). Every one is worth reading!
Good book. It's a great way to pass a few days reading. Just skip the first story in the book (or, you know, have more patience than I did with it). Good stuff.
