    Great novellas ans stories

    If you like real sci-fi with the promise of the 1050s of a futuristic world of wonder, then this compilation is for you.

    The opening novella by the late great Philip Jose Farmer alone was worth the buck I paid for the book.

    This hardcore stuff isn't for everyone, but if you are a fan of the Golden Age of sci-fi, don't pass this one up.

    I give it a 5!
