This was a perfectly serviceable entry in a fine series; it is neither the best nor the worst of the lot. This is true both in terms of the quality of the stories in it, and in terms of the smoothness of the editing. One item of note is that it contains the (allegedly) final story in the "Cynthia, Witch of Syracuse" series by Dorothy J. Heydt, which I've always been quite fond of and which is apparently being (has been by now?) collected into a book in its own right. I'll have to look for it.

I'd forgotten I'd already read this one. But then I was recognizing the stories. Not a bad selection in this S&S, still nowhere near as good as the volumes in their heyday.
