A collection of sf stories, some of them I liked more, some less yet they all stuck in my mind. There isn't really a common treat that goes trough this book, except that there is more then one story with "fairies", a concept the author later developed into a novel.

A must read companion to Fairyland. Most stories in it gave birth to it. Others are entertaining.
