    A nice collection of stories, including two about pacts with the devil, a really good one (albeit absurd) about a scientist who breeds a very large and very intelligent amoeba, and an outstanding one about a computerized chess game (The Immortal Game, by Poul Anderson--which recreates with computers a real chess game known by the same name). Interestingly, there was a story in there that I'd read probably 50+ years ago, by Isaac Asimov.

Interestingly, there was a story in there that I'd read probably 50+ years ago, by Isaac Asimov. It's about a boy and girl in the year 2155 who discover a real book--on paper, not on a screen. So, this story basically talks about today's tablet e-books. It's amusing because each kid has a computer teacher, and they have to punch their homework answers onto tape in a code the computers can read, and feed it into a slot for grading. So way advanced for books, way behind for how we input data into computers. I told my wife, a retired middle school teacher, about the story, and she said it was in the reading books for school to this day. That is probably where I read it too--in my junior high school reading book.

    Poul Anderson's "The Immortal Game" (an imaginative interpretation of a chess game), Isaac Asimov's "The Fun They Had" (future children looking back in wonder at how school was taught centuries before, while the 1953 view of how school will be taught 200 years in the future is a little dated) and Daniel Galouye's "Sanctuary" (a look at how much of a curse the ability to read other people's minds could be) combine to make this a special issue. Well worth reading.
