I think I would have liked this better if a few more of the stories had been upbeat. There was just a lot of people who died in space or on alien planets for me to really relate to the book. Still, very well written. I also wonder if science fiction needs to be updated every 50 years or so because now this book is less about the future and more a snapshot of the past. For instance, thinking that Bram Stoker's Dracula is the only vampire book ever, smoking in a rocket ship, and the fear that our society will eventually ban books and religion. It's all very interesting, lots of thoughts provoked and all that.
