It's often rather difficult to give a simple star rating to a collection, and that holds true here. While The Thaw and Ker-Plop are excellent and engaging short stories, a great many others grate as they seem to serve no real purpose other than to fill pages. Mandalay and Scrap from the Notebooks of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe are two middle-ground stories that almost make this collection bareable, but ultimately the good is buried beneath piles of the bad.

some good short stories, but as a whole, a very unfocused sci-fi collection.
