    1. Some poor editing in story selection and story order. Many stories are marginally science fiction at best. Often, stories very similar in style or subject mater are next to each other or only separated by one other story.Despite the flaws, there are many gems in here. If you need something to pass the time, pick it up.

    2. THE COUNTRY OF THE KIND. Damon Knight. 3 STARS. Much anthologized classic. A man condemned to pure living hell in a world where violence has been completely eradicated, via self-triggering seizures & horrific odor that warns others away. Yet violence begets artARISTOTLE & THE GUN. L. Sprague de Camp. 2 STARS. A man with a plan to change history. Of course, the result was exactly the opposite. Instead of more advanced technology, the world whence he came never experienced scientific renai [...]

    3. An interesting and somewhat idiosyncratic anthology. I was expecting this to be a collection of the consensus choices for best short fiction in the genre for the past 30 years (well, '60-'90, it's 20 years old at this point). But Dozois intentionally omits stories that have been frequently anthologized so you end up with a collection of the stories that were most affecting to Gardner. He has good taste so this isn't a big problem, but not all the stories were my cup of tea. Only skipped through [...]

    4. An engaging collection of stories. Not every story commandingly grabbed my attention, but many did. Many of the stories gave me pause, a few even compelled me to re-read them right then and there. It is a collection of science fiction stories from the 1950's through the 90's. It is interesting to see how the themes and styles change over the years. A good, varied read of SF short stories.
