An excellent collection of 60's science fiction works. A mixture of what at that time was old school SF and the humanist New Wave which makes a nice contrast and compare collection. Includes Ellison's A Boy and His Dog among others. I may not have read this particular collection, but I've read all of the stories listed.

The problem with volume III and IV of this series is that Nebula winners, being chosen by authors, are often about what authors find clever. Most of the stories are so cerebral and cryptic I often found myself finishing a story and asking “what the heck was that?”. I’m a reader, not a literature major, and the majority of the stories just didn’t make any sense. UGH!

Most of these are excellent stories, but several make me wonder what the SFWA members were thinking when they chose them. I wish there was some sort of discussion included of what swayed the voters.

"Repent, Harlequin!" Said the Ticktockman
Well-crafted, poetic social critique. The science-fictional element is there (the "cardio-plate"), but the emphasis here is definitely on the flow of words. Has a great title and a great sentence about jelly beans.

There's a very good reason why these stories won awards.

There are some fine works in this collection of Nebula Award winners. Arthur Clarke and George Proctor edited this book, with winners from 1965 through 1969.

These include some absolutely crackerjack works. Among my favorites: Harlan Ellison's "'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman," Roger Zelazny's "He Who Shapes," Jack Vance's "The Last Castle," Fritz Leiber's "Gonna Roll the Bones," Anne McCaffrey's "Dragonrider," and Samuel Delany's "Tome Considered as a Helix of Precious Stones."

This volume collects the short fiction Nebula Award winners from 1965-1969. There's not a bad story in the lot, and the works by Zelazny, Moorcock, and Ellison are still my favorites these many years later. It's one of those few books I'd seriously call a must-read for anyone interested in the modern genre.

I can not recommend this particular series highly enough. What a spectacular collection. Some HUGE names are in here.

My Favorites Were:
- Repent Harlequin Said the Ticktockman
- The Saliva Tree
- Call Him Lord
- The Last Castle
- Gonna Roll the Bones
- Dragonrider
- A Boy and His Dog

This book wont be getting donated. I intend to pass it around.

Didn't finish. I held on for a long time, but I don't think I'm going back to it. Some of the stories are very good. Maybe all of them. But most are too slow/literary for my taste.

Includes short stories, novellettes and Novellas. Features two very good stories by Harlan Ellison, including the dynamite "A Boy and His Dog."
