I highly recommend this collection for fans of fantastic literature or of short stories in general. You will love most, hate some and if you are like me, there will be a few you just don't even understand (what was that bus scene about in "Visitor From Down Under"??). Whether you take your time working your way through this massive collection as I did (read over 20 years) or read all 967 pages in one sitting - it is worth the time.

I was a little sad to finish this book after all the years we have spent together but luckily I recently found a copy of Black Water 2: More Tales of the Fantastic in a used bookstore. I plan to finish this collection faster than than the first volume, shooting for five years this time.
