3 1/2 stars. All in all, a good collection of stories which deserve to be rediscovered. Two ro three of them probably don't quite qualify as "great", but they're all good and a couple of them definitely deserve the description.

The first and last were a little weak, but the collection, as a whole, is wonderful. Aptly named book.
