VINE VOICEon 28 December 2013
A slender collection of six fantasy stories by SF masters, entertaining but none taken from the writer's top drawer. Clifford Simak's 'The Street That Wasn't There' was the best, claustrophobic in its intensity as it tells of a New York collapsing in on itself, to reveal a city radiating evil and malevolence. Pangborn's contribution is a neat tale, ending with restitution of a kind after quite a bit of mayhem. Weinbaum's explores the potential of a time travel as a way of rewriting the past, though a more favourable outcome for the seeker cannot always be guaranteed. The rest of the collection falls somewhat short of these three tales. For the price charged (on kindle) a worthwhile purchase, though at full (paperback) price not great value.

Not bad stories, if a bit outlandish in places.
I enjoyed the exotic locations and strange worlds depicted in these stories.A facinating account as everything slowly vanishes in "The Street That Wasn't There" and the twisting of time in "The World of If"
Great reading material if you like imaginative story telling

More excellent stories that give plenty of reasons for thought. They may not be long but so very entertaining. A collection I would highly recommend to anyone, Sci-Do fan or not .

This is some stories by earlier writers that I've enjoyed. And I found them just as interesting second time around.
