    I'm only reading the section on Science Fiction for my Sci-Fi film and literature class. After completing the sci-fi stories, I have to admit, I enjoyed the collection. Geeky? Oh yes. But it's also interesting from a social commentary standpoint. One can really tell what the world (or in most cases, America) was thinking about at different times, since the stories are arranged chronologically. The amount of nuclear destruction during the Cold War is, well, big. I'm only reading the section on Science Fiction for my Sci-Fi film and literature class.

    This is an eclectic collection, including some excellent and some . . . interesting selections. It’s generally much better on SF than fantasy, its selection of which shows very little range and some very variable quality. It des get credit for including "pulp" authors like Robert E. Howard and Edgar Rice Burroughs. However, no Tolkien? And fantast is mostly limited to horror-type stuff and high fantasy-type stuff; no magic realism or postmodern fantasy.

    This was a wonderful compilation. This book spanned the early SciFi and Dark Fantasy and led almost to modern times. The only drawback with this collection is that there was no "newer" fiction or fantasy. I agree with every piece in this book, I just think some should be added. This was a wonderful compilation.
