I used to read lots and lots of stories between the late Sixties and the late 90s - all in all probably several hundred issues of "The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction", "Isaac Asimov's SF Magazine", as well as "Analog", "Galaxy" and other magazines. Unfortunately I can't afford buying magazines anymore, and reading this collection by Ian Watson reminded me of what I miss: Literature of ideas, stories to the point and tales spreading from the quirky to the mundane. Reading Saving for a Sunny Day also reminded me that I do not read enough Ian Watson. While most collections (and anthologies of course) have - regardless of the author(s) - some great stories, some that are okay and always some not to my taste, Watson maintains a high level throughout. Very enjoyable, very smart and of course very much recommended.
