Ben Bova's non fiction writing seems better than his fiction in this collection. I enjoyed his description of John W Campbell's contribution to the SF genre ,but none of the other items really stood out.

A rather colorless set of short stories. Still worth reading if you like Bova, but not nearly as good as Twice Seven.
