Great title story; others in this volume disappoint,
By A Customer
This review is from: Fire Watch (Mass Market Paperback)
The first story in this collection shares its title with the book: "Fire Watch". That story may be the very best short science fiction work I have every read. Besides being a good story, there is depth to the ideas about history and life which go far beyond the plot.
Having had such a wonderful experience with the first story, I found myself sorely disappointed with the rest in the volume. The other stories struck me as very odd with much less depth. Most were so odd in fact, that I did not get anything else out of them.
