Being able to look back at stories before we knew so much is such a great experience. The commentary that he gives at the end of each one, his feelings about how the stories have aged and comments of the way our views on society and representation have changed. It's just such a good read.

Great collection of short stories. My favorite had to be Proxima Centauri,He Who Shrank, The Human Pets of Mars, and Big Game. Great stories for when you're traveling my train or subway and need something to occupy your time, but don't want to get into a novel.
