Shelves: sci-fi, short-stories
This is an enjoyable collection of short stories. The earlier stories seem to have a distinct sexual theme about them, going from electronically-assisted group sex to the consequences of teenage frustration. Later, the other theme of the book seemed to take over, that of time travel. The stories themselves were fairly eclectic, ending with the melancholy but humorous The Wind and the Rain. I enjoyed this, but don't think it's vintage Silverberg.

Well, not a four or five star book like I was hoping for. This book was interesting, a little outdated, but a cute little compilation of 13 different stories. Obviously, I felt some were better than others, like you would get in any compilation, but there were really none that totally wowed me, or deserved more than the 3 star rating that this book got overall. Not much to say, interesting lil sci fi read, but nothing more than that.

Some of it I loved and some of it I hated, I really enjoyed the last two stories, they are what probably stopped me from making this a one star book.
