Read in November, 2009 — I own a copy

I very much enjoyed the premise for this collection, but unfortunately the stories were uniformly bland. A few had clever ideas, a couple were moderately thought-provoking, but the only one with any of the emotional punch I associate with the theme of species death was one of the reprints, Avram Davidson's "Now Let Us Sleep." None of the stories were poorly written, but I had half forgotten them the very next day.
