    Leroy Erickson

    Many pretty good stories and a couple of clinkers. Avram Davidson - The Sources of the Nile - 4 stars - A story about people who just naturally are able to anticipate future trends, and the other people who fight like crazy to make sure that they are the only ones who can take advantage of those predictions. Vance Aandahl - The Man on the Beach - 2 stars - It probably seemed like a very creative story idea, but he just couldn't pull it off. Clifford D. Simak - Shotgun Cure - 4 stars - Aliens offer Many pretty good stories and a couple of clinkers. Avram Davidson - The Sources of the Nile - 4 stars - A story about people who just naturally are able to anticipate future trends, and the other people who fight like crazy to make sure that they are the only ones who can take advantage of those predictions. Vance Aandahl - The Man on the Beach - 2 stars - It probably seemed like a very creative story idea, but he just couldn't pull it off. Clifford D. Simak - Shotgun Cure - 4 stars - Aliens offer a cure for all of mankind's diseases for free, no questions asked. A country doctor takes them up on the offer and tries it out. It seems to work perfectly and ends up being implemented world wide. Then that original doctor notices a possible side effect. What should he do? Charles V. deVet - Return Journey - 4 stars - Mankind moves out to the stars. They colonize a planet with the permission of the intelligent indigent species, but then, many years later, are told that they have to leave. Interesting twists. Gordon R. Dickson - Rehabilitated - 4 stars - An interesting view of how to make use of people who might otherwise be unable to contribute to society. William Eastlake - What Nice Hands Held - 3 stars - This story just makes it seem like the author is trying to show how non-racist he is by blasting out racist ideas every other line. Robert F. Young - Hopsoil - 3 stars - A supposed Martian science fiction story about the Martians colonizing the blue sands of Earth. OK, but not that good. Isaac Asimov - Science: Here It Comes; There It Goes! - 3 stars - A 1960 view of the origin of the universe. Grendel Briarton - Ferdinand Feghoot: XXXV - 2 stars - No. Poul Anderson - Time Lag - 4 stars - Mankind has colonized the planets on many stars. Communication between colonies is lost in the early years, then is reestablished when one planet decides it needs growth space and decides to attack and take over control of other local planets. It doesn't quite work out the way that was hoped.
