The Dark Side of the Earth

By Alfred Bester

Rating: 2 stars

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Afred Bester, but this early collection of short stories didn’t really justify it. Only one of the collection (The Flowered Thundermug) was memorable. The rest were average to uninteresting, and there was an undertone of sexism running through the stories that I didn’t hugely like either. I’m still going to read The Demolished Man at some point though.
