Stendhal's first novel is a case study in his theory of love. It blends a cynical analysis of 'present day morals' with a set of concealed political sentiments which (for the benefit of the censors) he claimed were not his own.

Good anthology. Would be an addition to a classroom as well -- many of the 'Think About It' questions were thought-provoking. The information about the author and the 'Read On!' were a nice addition and might lead to further reading (always a bonus especially with students). I enjoyed the addition of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde at the end, but would have enjoyed more sci-fi stories instead. A couple of the stories really caught my interest.

a solid little anthology. aimed at school-aged readers, but the stories are really for everybody. stories I will single out for exceptionalness: contagion by Katharine Maclean, All Summer in a Day by Ray Bradbury, Ear by Jane Yolen, and The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, which I have never read, and am now glad I did.

My class read almost all of the stories in this anthology.It wasn't the best or the worst thing I have ever read.

This was the first anthology I ever read regarding science fiction. My favorite story was Desertion by Clifford D. Simak; it's been in the back of mind for five years and it's hard to forget.

Some really good stories by famous authors, plus Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, by Robert Louis Stevenson, which was difficult to read.

Not 100% accurate to say that I actually read the whole thing but I read a few of the stories.

All are good, solid sci-fi stories, though mostly at a young adult level.

Various is the correct author for any book with multiple unknown authors, and is acceptable for books with multiple known authors, especially if not all are known or the list is very long (over 50).

If an editor is known, however, Various is not necessary. List the name of the editor as the primary author (with role "editor"). Contributing authors' names follow it.
