    1. This was a great collection! I went through it one section at a time (I'd read a story from a section, then read another story from another section, top to bottom, rotating through sections until I finished). Doing so gave me a cursory glance of early science fiction without feeling stuck in one themed gave me enough space between stories sharing a theme to see how different authors treated the idea differently.I discovered this collection in a used bookstore in Ventura, CA and I'm happy I did. [...]


    2. There was, honestly, only one story I did not like and it wasn't because it was a bad story: it's because the author did such a good job making me DETEST the people in the story who were supposed to be detested. I actually felt the anger of the main characters and I wanted to strangle the 'bad guys'.


    3. There's a good reason Conklin is known as a master editor of these collections. He's done an excellent job here.




    4. The Conklin anthologies were pivotal in my love of science fiction. I read all of them as a teen. They still hold up.
