HASH(0x913b8e64) out of 5 stars A very pleasant selection of different genres 17 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I read a Spanish translation of this book, a collection of Martin's short stories, and though some are predictable (the Sandkings ending comes to mind, but I won't give it away here), it is enjoyable.
Martin handles several different genres in these stories: from horror to science-fiction, visiting fantasy along the way. And he even throws some humor into the mix!
A very good read.

HASH(0x91d94df8) out of 5 stars Martin's Best Collection. Amazing. Spectacular! 15 April 2003
By Haplo Wolf - Published on
Format: Hardcover
What is this?
The contents of this book are mind-stunning.
If you have a taste for Horror combined with SF elements then this will be something for you.
I do however hope that you have a lot of money because this collection of stories is o.o.p. and desired by many, and treasured by many.
Contents follow:
* The Monkey Treatment
* "...for a single yesterday"
* The Needle Men
* Meathouse Man
* Sandkings
* Nightflyers
* Remembering Melody
* In the House of the Worm
* This Tower of Ashes
Got that?
Many classics in this book. Very rare. Very good.
Sandkings is still readily available. But the others are just as good -some even better!
This has got to be reprinted!
I know there isn't much money to be made with SF collections, but I honestly think that with a bit of marketing, and with GRRM's name splashed on the cover -underlined with "Author of A Song of Ice and Fire" this book will be a bestseller. All the right ingredients are there.
Ah, I should have become an editor, or maybe even a publisher.
This is a goldmine just waiting to get discovered.
Killing a healthy lion with your bare hands is easier than finding this book.

HASH(0x91b32bb8) out of 5 stars Great little collection 30 Aug. 2002
By Glenn McDorman - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This early collection of Martin's stories contains some of his best. Even at just over two hundred pages there are two award winners in here. Sandkings and Nightflyers are two of the best pieces of contemporary short SF and should be read by anyone who is a fan of the genre. The other stories in the collection are mainly horror pieces, but with an SF edge to them. They are all good, and most are excellent. Hopefully Martin will return to this sort of work when he gets done trying his hand at High Fantasy.

HASH(0x919a71f8) out of 5 stars AMAZING! 11 Nov. 2002
By P. Robinson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
If you can find this book, buy it! The price is high because everyone who has it knows its too good to give it up.
This book has some of the best stories ever written...

Monkey Treatment and Needle Man were awesome and terrifying...
For a single yesterday, and Remembering Melody, were Gems that tug at ones heart strings..

And of course Sandkings is simply amazing..

Buy This book, Whatever the cost!!!

HASH(0x913bca2c) out of 5 stars caveat emptor 3 July 2012
By alek - Published on
Format: Hardcover
the british print isbn 0-575-03566-8 does not include the last 2 stories of the original Dark harvest published...House of the Worm is one of my favourite stories and does not appear in this or his retrospective
