    Engrossing and fun. Space Opera at its best delivered with southern charm.

    If you were big and ugly, had a ton of sharp teeth, and a truly enormous appetite, you wouldn't need the "magic word" either! These stories for kids, from acclaimed storytelling songster Bill Harley, center around the theme of being small.

    Dan says: "Mrs Jones 1st grade class loved it!"
    "Good but beware"
    Overall

    There's a little scary story in the middle that my kids always skip. It kinda ruins it for them a bit.

    From early stories like "Breaking Strain," to classics like "The Nine Billion Names of God" and "The Sentinel" (kernel of the later novel and movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey), all the way to later groundbreaking works such as "The Hammer of God" and "Transit to Earth," this volume encapsulates one of the great science fiction writing careers of all time.

    Charles Gousha says: "Know what you're getting"
    "A little uneven but fun"
    Overall

    Spanning AC Clarke's career it's not suprising that the stories are a bit uneven.
    But, on the whole, worthwhile.

    The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction has submitted ten of its best of 2002. Although the collection is a veritable cornucopia of styles and subjects, each story is somehow notable for its compassion and humanity.

    Tim says: "Great Writing - Mediocre Plots"
    "Excellent."
    Overall

    These stories were each and every one a pleasure.

    Analog Science Fiction & Fact Magazine has provided four edgy stories about heroism, each exploring emotional dimensions uncommon in this or any other genre.

    William T. Katz says: "Highly entertaining"
    "Very nice."
    Overall

    I'm a short story fan and these were, of course, the best.

    Frank Herbert's Dune is one of the grandest epics in the annals of imaginative literature. Now Herbert's son, Brian, working with Kevin J. Anderson and using Frank Herbert's own notes, reveals a pivotal epoch in the history of the Dune universe: the Butlerian Jihad, the war that was fought ten thousand years before the events of Dune - the war in which humans wrested their freedom from "thinking machines."

    Brian says: "enoyed premise but not execution"
    "It's ok"
    Overall

    Not bad, not good, sort of in between. Not the rich tapestry of the original work but full of detail that some would enjoy.

    Enter the fantastical world of Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast Trilogy, one of the undisputed fantasy classics of all time. Novelist C.S. Lewis called Peake's books "actual additions to life; they give, like certain rare dreams, sensations we never had before, and enlarge our conception of the range of possible experience."

    Benjamin L. Alpers says: "Count Me Among the Peake Fans"
    "Boring, boring, boring."
    Overall

    I listened to the whole thing but it was a struggle. I found the news more to my liking.

    Johnny Appleseed's real name was John Chapman, a native of Massachusetts who lived from 1774 to 1845. It is known that he wandered for 40 years through Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana sowing apple seeds, staying one step ahead of the pioneer movement in order to sell seedlings to those who traveled through. Chapman was known for his humanitarian values: his cheerfulness, generosity, and most of all, his respect for, and nearly mystical relationship with, nature.

    Elizabeth says: "Fact not fiction"

    Overall

    I was hoping for some folklore of J.A. but got fact instead. The kids love it, though, so I'm not complaining.
