Gr 8-11-- A strong, well-balanced short-story collection featuring a sophisticated, artfully arranged blend of science fiction and fantasy. The stories vary in plot and writing style, yet their vitality and versatility are excellent. Especially memorable are Somtow Sucharitkul's ``The Web Dancer,'' a beautifully written tale of a young girl's obsession with performing a triple somersault on an overhead rope; in contrast is Edward D. Hoch's hilarious science-fiction mystery, ``The Homesick Chicken,'' which answers the proverbial question as to why the chicken crossed the road. An enchanting tale of hobgoblins that begs to be read aloud is Judith Moffett's ``The Hob.'' And don't overlook Asimov's thought-provoking work about a future education system, ``Profession.'' Great for reading aloud or for individual enjoyment. --Pam Spencer, Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, Fairfax County, VA
