Unlike a few anthologies, this one was well-balanced in regard to story quality. Not surprising based on the title. :-)
I had read a few of these before but they were worth my time to revisit. I picked this up because "A Meeting with Medusa" is a prequel to a current book written by Baxter and Reynolds called "The Medusa Chronicles" (reviewed later) and also for the fact that these are all award-winning novellas. My favorites were "The Last of the Winnebagos" and "The Persistence of Vision".

What a milestone...

I've completed this anthology after at least 6 years of having it lying around! So many life events happened as I chipped away at this.

They're all pretty good and varied, but The Persistence of Vision by John Varley is one of the most incredible stories ever. It will effect ALL your senses while reading it... that's all I should say.

These stories are all five-star personal favorites within this collection:
"A Meeting with Medusa" by Arthur C. Clarke,
"Home is the Hangman" by Roger Zelazny,
"The Persistence of Vision" by John Varley,
and most especially:
"The Last of the Winnebagos" by Connie Willis, which just gets to me on so many levels: anti-authority, melancholy, photographer, dog-lover.

I enjoyed this collection of novella. Definitely good way to view different writing styles. They were all thought provoking. The only one I struggled with was the persistence of vision. Though that may be more my worldview. Not the writing style.

I thought Frits Leiber's "Ill Met in Lankhmar" and Lois McMaster Bujold's "The Mountains of Mourning" were the strongest stories. ...more
