Masterpieces: The Best Science Fiction of the 20th Century 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

The previous reviewer obviously didn't download the sample because the ToC is right in there. This is a great compilation of science fiction by many great authors and is definitely worth reading. The anthology included Heinlen and Asimov works I hadn't read before which is what drew me to it, and I discovered many great authors I'd never heard of before so this book opened up many new worlds for me.

Great selection of stories. Sandkings (George R. R. Martin) and Tunesmith (Lloyd Biggle Jr) are not to be missed.

I'm not sure this anthology quite lives up to its title, but it's worth buying for Ellison's "'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman" alone. In fact, that's exactly why I bought it, since I have many of the other stories elsewhere...

When I am looking to purchase an anthology, I ALWAYS look at the Table fo Contents. This information should be presented on the "Product Details Page" along with everything else. This is getting only 1 star as I do not know what's inside the cover!
