it was amazing
bookshelves: sci-fi
Read in July, 1990

I read a LOT of short story collections, and I think the reason why is that I'm hoping that SOME day I'll find a collection as good as this one. Reading it always brings me back to music camp, where my Mom sent a copy in a care package for my sister and I. It was my first look at Kurt Vonnegut ("Harrison Bergeron") and Larry Niven ("Inconstant Moon") and John Varley ("The Phantom of Kansas") and Frederik Pohl ("The Gold At the Starbow's End") and way too many more to mention, all of them wonderful. (Aww, just looking through the contents I spotted Lewis Padgett's "The Proud Robot," that's a great one, I'll have to reread that one tonight...) Great great stuff, all of it.
