This is a classic anthology--the best of the New Wave that hit science fiction in the late 60s/early 70s. Writers were tasked with producing something "dangerous". Some were dangerous due to content--radical for the day--as in Ursula LeGuinn's fantastic radical environmental work "The Word for the World is Forest" or a very young Piers Anthony's sci fi/horror animal rights manifesto "In the Barn."

Until 20 years or so ago, I would have rated this one a 5-star; I probably read it half a dozen times. But anymore when I browse sections, the times have passed it by, not the ideas so much as the language of the times. Still some incredible stories in there.
Pretty visionary and interesting sci-fi story compilation from the late-60s/early 70s. Sci-fi touched by psychedelia, rather novel stuff and lots of fun.

Ellison, enfant terriblé of the New Wave of Science Fiction of the '60s, edited this influential anthology.
