Review Text

A double dozen from a recognized science-fiction writer, these stories range further in subject than his expected field, so that this is not necessarily confined to bug-eyed monster devotees. There are a couple of Chinese tales of moral import, a short sketch of a Mexican being deported, a baseball game between whites and blacks, a mountain woman who has not learned to read or write, a religious faith that comes through modern science, the innocently amoral quieting of a woman grieving for her husband at war, a fashion photographer put in his place by a native, the one-world-ness of a moving picture studio, - along with a lightfingered handling of future worlds, time warps, and magic. A very pleasant variety show. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
