    • Wow, a collected book of these author's works was sure to please, and this one certainly did.The book is well put together with interesting biographical information on each author and their impact on Science Fiction. The selected stories of each were also well selected and representative, although if you have read a great many other anthologies some of these will be familiar. Most of the stories are older, understandably, since they come from the golden age of Science Fiction. Some stories feel [...]


    • I bought this book mainly to get the Jack Vance story "The Magicians". I had not read it for years and it did not disappoint. I also enjoyed the other pieces by Vance and those by A E van Vogt. The Lester del Ray stories seem dated, Pohl was hit or miss, and although Damon Knight was a great editor, I've never really cared for him as a writer. But your taste may differ. It was worth the price of the Vance and van Vogt stories to me, but I may biff an of both.


    • There are some really good stories in here. Fred Pohl's "The Tunnel under the World" is great-- shades of "Groundhog Day". And I enjoyed all three of the Jack Vance stories. Based on this collection, Damon Knight is a pretty dark writer, and A. E. van Vogt is old-school space monster cool-- "Vault of the Beast" rocks. One complaint: two of the four Lest del Rey stories are very similar; couldn't the editor have found something with a bit more variety?


    • Short story compilations, especially SF ones, fell out of favor with me years ago. But this one is 100% recommended. Each time I finished a story, it was a struggle to put down the book and get back to my normal business.
