4.0 out of 5 stars Another Wildside Press special 21 Oct 2013
By Mondoro TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE

A collection of stories by British fantasy and SF writers, ranging from 'hard science' to tales of the supernatural (the first two stories, by Brian Ball). I was struck by the brilliant whodunit story from the one non-British author in the anthology, Antonio Bellomi, where some knowledge of Bode's Law turns out to be very handy. The majority fall into the SF category, with two cautionary tales about how to manage first contact situations in space: the ironically-titled 'Final Contact', and the outstanding story in this collection, E C Tubb's 'The Greater Ideal'.

The overall standard of stories in this collection is high, with only one or two duds and one rather dated, overlong item ('Prisoner of Time') which seems out of place here. However, the presentation is somewhat below the usual Wildside standards, with a repeated paragraph at location 1795 ('Assassin') and a host of typos in Philip High's 'The Gunman'.

I liked this collection because, well because I like classic old school SciFi, and I like the authors in this collection - a bit of a boys own adventure vibe, some stories had nice little twists in them too...

5.0 out of 5 stars great bedtime reading. 19 Dec 2013

I don't want to get involved in a full length novel, so these short stories were just right. When the story did not appeal to me I just skipped it. Wonderful value for the money.
