    Some darn good stories are collected here mostly from the 1950s Surprises tooThe first surprise is that Wyman Guin's story about schizophrenic characters leading separate lives predates Philip Dick's later focus on this topic and Guin's story is a knockout too The tale goes far beyond Aldous Huxley's Brave new world society into a world populated by a new type of person one that could fit into a contemporary Rudy Rucker meatie world It's society under examination not individuals per se and for that reason the story has in common with Huxley than with Rucker or DickPKD's story on the other hand is technological and the surprise to me was that it's the story that the film Screamers with Peter Weller was later based on The story differs uite a bit from the film spawned from it but the essence is the sameJames Blish's piece is terrific and shows how clear his vision was before he took to writing Star Trek episode encapsulationsBrian W Aldiss's piece raised the science fiction bar to a level where environmental ethics are confronted It's a doozyAsimov was clever if a bit droll; I can't remember the Clifton van Vogt was good and Moore was darned interesting but proceeded uite slowly

    Great collection of stories Highlights include Philip K Dick's Second Variety; if the Wachowskis did NOT read this before writing the Matrix I'll eat my hat Asimov's story was a fun little comment on reliance on computers I'll admit I pull out my calculator to do all but the most basic of arithmetic Resurrection by AE Van Vogt and Vintage Season by Hentry Kuttner were both fairly chilling and thought provoking
