Just finished this gem that's been hiding on my bookshelf for years. This is a fantastic representation of the classic sci-fi shorts of the 30s, 40s, and 50s.

65 short short stories - 'short-shorts' - from the 1930s to the 1990s. This collection is a real pick'n'mix of tales. There are stories from the giants of SF and the forgotten giants and journeymen (and women) of yesteryear. This is not a collection to be read in one sitting, rather something that can be dipped into a couple of stories at a time, whenever the reader has a spare quarter-hour or so.
