Short story collection.

I bought this mostly to re-read "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale" and to read for the first time "The Minority Report."

I really enjoyed the stories here. Some stand out for me (in addition to the "marquee titles" above):
- "Fair Game", the opening story, gives us a whole different view of why Earth exists.
- "Exhibit Piece", an early book about the nature of reality, only he neatly ties a bow on this story (unlike some of his later work.
- "Foster, You're Dead" is a later story (early 70s). Interesting treatment of Cold War preparations and how each individual should think about their part.
