bookshelves: own, science-fiction, anthology, 2011-read
Recommended for: people already familiar with the 'universes' of the included stories (due to spoilers)
Read from October 02 to November 15, 2011, read count: 1

Novellas and short stories from some of the greatest science fiction 'worlds' of all time. I love some of these worlds, so it is great to revisit them, but unfortunately, it is not a good starting point for the series I'm unfamiliar with - the intro to most gives a synopsis of the plots of the books in the series - including spoilers. I'm bouncing through the book reading stories as the mood hits. (Ones read so far are in bold.)

UPDATE: I've decided not to finish the entire book - I don't want to read the stories set in the universes that I'd still like to read the series. I don't want spoilers for them. So, I'm marking this as finished and moving on...
