A book of 25 stories, an author interview, and a synopsis of each author. Some stories are cliffhangers with no folowup book done by the author, and a couple are bizarre little snapshot tales. Two notable exceptions are the story by Aldris Budrys, and The Survivors which is a two part story by Tom Godwin. I wish there had been a follow-up series done by Mr Godwin for The Survivors, but it is available as a separate book under a different title.
