I received a free Kindle copy of this book from Net Galley and Subterranean Press, the publisher. It was with the understanding that I would post a review on Net Galley, Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and my book review site. I also posted the review to my Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google Plus pages.

I requested this book as I have read several by Robert Silverberg and I am a fan.

This book is a series of short stories from his early days before he became famous.Bearing that in mind, I

I received a free copy via Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.
This is a great reminder of late 50's Science Fiction writing by one of the most prolific writers.
