    This is a remarkably good collection of SF short stories; it contains several famous ones, including Isaac Asimov's The Key, Philip K. Dick's We Can Remember It For You Wholesale (later adapted for the screen as Total Recall) and Roger Zelazny's This Moment of the Storm. But my personal favourite has to be Mose Mallette's insane piece, The Seven Wonders of the Universe. Considering that I last looked at it in the early 70s, I am astonished how much I can remember!

Dick's We Can Remember It For You Wholesale (later adapted for the screen as Total Recall) and Roger Zelazny's This Moment of the Storm. But my personal favourite has to be Mose Mallette's insane piece, The Seven Wonders of the Universe. Considering that I last looked at it in the early 70s, I am astonished how much I can remember! Three of the Seven Wonders are the Copulation Pits of Venus (Western Section); the Copulation Pits of Venus (Central Section); and the Copulation Pits of Venus (Eastern Section). Some people think the emphasis is too heavily on sex, comments the editor. But it is not, merely on copulation. There is some debate concerning the question of whether Dort-Worshipers, apparently the predominant religious community of the Galaxy, are permitted to visit the Copulation Pits. It all turns on the interpretation of the following verse, which I am almost sure I can recall verbatim:A goblet, a goblet, yea, even a hoop, the eyes of time their seasons savour and all things flow yet, who does know? but such is life, business is business, and Dort is not mocked, yea yea.You can see why it kept the theologians busy. Wow. I find that I can even remember the other Wonders! They are, I believe, - The University of Lesser Balik - The Brass Nodes of the Universe - The Great Bearded Kumquat of Koor - The Crystals of Lalande It really is a fine story. _______________________________________________ I found a used copy for sale on Abebooks, and had to order it. The Seven Wonders of the Universe is just as insanely funny as I had recalled. I was pleased to find that I had remembered the quoted passage from Book of Dort word for word, though I was wrong about the names of a couple of the Wonders. It's "The University of Lesser Balak" and "The Great Bearded Kumquat of Lagesh". I must just quote you the passage describing the Kumquat before I get back to work:On the plain of Lagesh squats the Great Bearded Kumquat. ("Gah! Bearded! Disgusting!" was heard on all sides.) The Kumquat answers any questions that visitors are imprudent enough to put to it. Some fault has been found with these answers, but the Great Bearded Kumquat has never found any fault with its visitors, whom it describes as "uniformly delicious".

    This collection of stories from the mid 1960's includes "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale" by Philip K Dick. This story is the basis for the "Total Recall" movie with Arnold. In other words, some pretty classy sf of the time. Whenever you read older sf, it's interesting to see how much of the future they get right and how much they miss. Like characters taking an automated taxi but having to look up phone numbers in a book and stopping for a pay phone. I think I would have traded -- I hate dr This collection of stories from the mid 1960's includes "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale" by Philip K Dick.

Like characters taking an automated taxi but having to look up phone numbers in a book and stopping for a pay phone. I think I would have traded -- I hate driving. Well, maybe not, 'cause I love my iPhone. I recommend this as part of the series, representative of the time and venue.
