Science fiction

By S.H. Burton

Rating: 3 stars

This collection of SF short stories aims to combine SF with ‘literature’ and show the best side of the genre, and I must admit that it succeeded for me. With contributions from Heinlein, Bradbury, Asimov and Clarke amongst others I thought it was a very strong collection of SF from the 1940s to the late 60s.

Ray Bradbury’s Dark They Were and Golden-Eyed and Arthur C. Clarke’s The Star stand out as particular gems, while Asimov’s Youth, about two youngsters who find an exotic ‘animal’, is an interesting story with a twist that put a smile on my face.
