1.0 out of 5 stars Not the complete stories!, 12 Nov. 2011
Be aware that these are not the complete stories of Isaac Asimov (hence only 1 star; the stories themselves are 5 star). The Collins paperback edition, volume 1, has 25 stories; the Collins paperback edition, volume 2, has a further 23 stories. The Doubleday hardback edition, volume 1, has all the 48 stories in Collins editions vol 1 and 2; the Doubleday hardback edition, volume 2, has a further 40 stories, not found in either of the Collins volumes. So essentially Collins are short-chaning on the stories, they contain only about half (48 stories) of the complete set (88 stories). If you want the complete stories - all 88 of them - only buy the Doubleday versions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Ghostly Read, 2 Nov. 2011
A wonderful book by the master of the ghost story. Superbly written and constructed, intelligent, stories, that chill and scare and disturb and challenge thinking. And all in a great new edition. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book-really bad edition/printing, 2 Nov. 2011
This is a fantastic set of essays by a master of science fiction, very worthwhile having, and a great read; I cannot recommend the contents highly enough. The problem comes with this particular paperback edition/printing, which is awful (hence only three stars - the contents are 5 stars): faint, small, words, crammed together, in what seems to be a cheaply bound book - not a good reading experience. So be aware of this and try and get a hardback version if you can.

2.0 out of 5 stars Felixble but slow, 1 Oct. 2008
Works like a mobile phone - can use it anywhere (well it is possible to do so, but I wouldn't bank on it, it depends on the signal strength which is not that good) and can top up each month at differing rates according to your usage. In that respect it is flexible. HOWEVER - it does not always get a signal, crashes out regularly, and is SLOW, sometimes VERY SLOW, slower than dial up even. It all depends on the signal which is not strong and can be affected by atmoshperic conditions, whether the dongle is placed low or high (high seems best), whether a flea burps or the cat sneezes within thirty feet of it, a feather blows in the breeze down the road, or a car backfires in the next village, etc.
