A superior collection, even if it is dated.

Part of it being dated is good: I love the cover, which is so 70s and 80s. (Carlos Castanada, anyone?)

Part of it is dated by design. It's meant to be a collection of stories culled from fantasy magazines. It's a retrospective. But this very notion of a collection is dated--the editor's for example, in their overall introduction and the introduction to the individual stories--are quick to point out the differences between fantasy and science fiction, a d

Recommends it for: anybody new to fantasy short fiction, and most others as well.
Shelves: fantasy, anthologies
Overall an excellent introduction to (mostly American) magazine science fiction from the beginnings of 'Weird Tales' and it's stars HP Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith in the 20s up through the 1970s and the continuing dominance of 'The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction' in the field. The selection is excellent overall, there are few if any duds here, but I do have a couple of caveats, namely that the book might have done better to have chosen some longer stories in the case of certain wri ...more

I read this collection of stories late in grade school and blame it partly for my desire to write and tell stories. The lone copy at my hometown library came and stayed with me multiple times; had I been a more crooked kid, I would've stolen it outright and lied that I'd lost it. But at some point I forgot the exact title and instead thought of it as the book with this story and that story in it. Eventually, I lost track of the book for several years, realized I'd forgotten about it, and then fr ...more

This is one of the most enjoyable short story anthologies I have ever read. Most of the selections are vintage tales from Weird Tales and The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. I think the book came out in 1979 (or early 80's?), so the most up-to-date story is "Jefty is Five" by Harlan Ellison. So, think "pulp fiction," with a heavy emphasis on what is sometimes called "weird fiction."

I read this cover to cover. I think there are about 30 stories and close to 700 pages altogether. Amazi

I read through these and have decided that I simply don't like reading short stories. I prefer an extensive plot instead of gimmicks and cleverness. However I am not rating this because it would not be fair to judge the excellent writing on my dislike of a genre.

Carr was born in Grants Pass, Oregon. He attended the City College of San Francisco and the University of California, Berkeley from 1954 to 1959.

Carr discovered science fiction fandom in 1949, where he became an enthusiastic publisher of fanzines, which later helped open his way into the commercial publishing world. (He was one of the two fans responsible for the hoax fan 'Carl Brandon' after whom
