antiloquax: A fine haul there; some of the best anthologies to be had. Do you have Dangerous Visions
, the previous book in the set? At the point A,DV
was issued, "speculative fiction" had taken a hard left, and someone not used to the sort of "inner space" fiction of the period may find it a bit difficult to get into. Fine stories, but it does take a certain shift in gears from the "normal" sf. DV
is a bit more accessible, and a great way to "ease into" the transition. I'd also suggest getting vol. 2B of the SF Hall of Fame
-- both these are excellent books.
Just in case you're interested, I'd also recommend looking for some of the larger anthologies edited by Groff Conklin; he was one of the best when it came to using stories from the Golden Age; and of course there's that massive tome Adventures in Time and Space
(ed. by Healy & McComas), which was something of a groundbreaker in its time, and still remains a very notable volume.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adventu...Time_and_Space http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Groff_Conklin
Mr. G: As I understand it, the PoM film has been (once again) shelved for the time being....
nomadman: Malzberg is quite varied, but at his best, a fine writer, well worth looking into.
DD: I wasn't even aware Myers had written a book of that title. Care to give more information?
