Birds are suddenly not eating the insects and worms they usually do and this is causing a cascading effect with insects destroying crops. Cows don't have the grasses to graze and dairy production is gone. First there are shortages with higher prices, then people going hungry. Stan decides to follow the birds, by injuring a couple of them, to see where they are going. The science is a stretch, but the characters and relationship of Stan and Celia are good. 25 • The Doom of London • 9 pages by Robert Barr OK. Fifty years after an American came to see Sir John with an invention that will produce healthful oxygen Sir John's secretary recounts how that invention was rejected. The American left the prototype in the outer office and it saved his life. Almost everyone else in London was killed by the stagnant fog that after seven days ran out of oxygen. The biggest takeaway from this story is that even in the 1890's there were environmentalists. 35 • The Accountant • 7 pages by Robert Sheckley Good/VG. Mr. and Mrs. Dee are worried about Morton. He's failing spells, forgetting what are the best conjuring herbs and the geography of hell. He, gasp, wants to be an accountant. Nice twist. 43 • Careless Love • 17 pages by Albert Compton Friborg Good. The world has degraded into war between Russia and America. Each now has a supercomputer that can knock down the other power's offensive strikes. A bit too late, many cities have already been devastated. The remaining population is depressed. After many tries with psychologists, they pose the problem to Dinah. 61 • My Boy Friend's Name is Jello • 4 pages by Avram Davidson Good. A man who is laid up in his room hears some girls chanting rhymes which may turn out to have some broader meaning. 65 • Star Lummox (part 3 of 3) • 49 pages by Robert A. Heinlein Very Good. John Thomas Stuart VIII went on the Trail Blazer and brought a creature back to Earth. For 120 years Lummox has been friends with John Thomases. After the events of the first two installments Lummox and Johnnie XI are found. Lummox is returned to the Hroshii and then Kiku starts negotiating. Lummox wants John Thomas to accompany him back to Hroshij and Kiku won't let a human be taken hostage. Kiku was a good diplomat or lucky, from getting fired but his friend sticking up for him getting his job back to his dealings with the Hroshii. Heinlein kept it within reason. Nicely done given the constraints of having to keep a complex first contact situation simple. I liked the characters Johnnie, Lummie and Betty. Even Kiku and Greenwall, too. 114 • Infinite Resources • 4 pages by Randall Garrett OK. A traveler from a parallel dimension seeks out Professor Lattimer to ask him about infinite numbers of parallel dimensions. 118 • The Lysenko Maze • 10 pages by David Grinnell Good. A scientist sets out to prove the heredity of acquired characteristics. He and a skeptic set out to prove or disprove this by creating an environment which will require mice to gain intelligence.
