    1. Some very good stories but some stories that are very outdated either technically, like martians or culturally, like the roles of women Also, very mixed levels of writing.

    2. As this is a massive collection, I will post comments as I go and adjust my rating accordingly 1 A Strange Manuscript found in a Copper Cylinder by James De Mille REACTION This short story was of a short novel with 50 short stories being in this book, this story alone occupies a quarter of this collection it seems to go on for ages without end it starts rather dull, gets interesting, then goes back to dull for the last few chapters yes, its a short story with chapters it was almost as if i was [...]

    3. As many others have pointed out, this collection actually contains one short novel encompassing about 20% of the pages and 49 short stories There are a few gems here, but the majority of the stories are merely run of the mill science fiction seemingly plucked at random from golden age magazines I m not sure what criteria was used to select the contents, but I don t really think quality was high on the list I definitely wasn t displeased by the collection but I was not particularly pleased either [...]

    4. This one took me 3 tries over two years to finish, which is unusual for me I found the first story, a book length novel, hard to read Eventually, I got further in and found it interesting But it is over 20% of this long anthology The rest of the stories are a mixed bag, with no apparent connection Some are old classics and some much newer I d read a number of them, some recently enough I skipped them.The table of contents is not linked to the stories, making it hard to move to the next one easi [...]

    5. If you can get through the first story, by far the longest and most drawn out, you will find the rest enjoyable Some are perfectly paced while others are the beginnings of novels cut entirely too short A few made me pause briefly to wonder before moving to the next and a couple made me laugh out loud, though I could not now tell you which.

    6. I ve not read the whole thing Some of the stories seem dated, but I enjoyed several in this, especially A World Is Born by Leigh Brackett I love that one so much and need to re read it I wish someone would make a movie of it.

    7. The stories are a little bit dated and some of them are almost offensive to my modern sensibilities, but it is really cool to read science fiction written than 40 years ago The storylines are similar but the imagining of where we would could be is fascinating.
